This is Butchy speaking today. We have postponed Wheely Wednesday until tomorrow some time. Poor Snickers had many seizures last night from 2:00-4:00AM. Mama was up all night with her trying to do what she could. She rushed her to the vet this morning & they took lots of blood & did a battery of tests on her. She is doing ok so far today. The tests done today only showed an elevation in liver enzymes. So tomorrow she will be at the vet again very early in the morning after doing a 12 hour fast & they will do a bile acid test to see what the enzyme level is before eating, and after eating. She'll be back home tomorrow afternoon. But we won't know the test results until possibly Monday or Tuesday. If the test results turn out ok, then Snickers has just NORMAL EPILEPSY & will need to start taking medication to keep seizures away. If the tests are NOT ok, the next step is an ultrasound done on the liver looking for tumors. Please cross your paws that Snickers only has the epilepsy. It is very easy to treat for the rest of her life. Mama is very very worried, but she can't let Snickers know this.
Our sweet cousin Nurse Asta is on her way here to help with nursing duties. She is an excellent nurse so we know that Snickers will be well cared for. Please also pray for our wirey pal Jackson. He also just had a ton of tests taken & tomorrow will go through more tests & need to stay overnight at the vet office. As soon as we get test results we will let you know.
