Hans went in to the vet for more testing today. He had an abdominal ultra sound, results came back great! He had to have a doggie Brazilian for it so he’s a little rashy right now #thestruggle #grasswasabadidea
😂... he also had more extensive blood work done, urine analysis, cortisol, thyroid, bile I think.. so now we wait to see how that looks.. we will know tomorrow. Based off of that, if it’s inconclusive, we will schedule his MRI and spinal tap.. which we are most afraid about because he has to be put under anesthesia... and we are afraid of the results.. if everything comes back normal, then he will be diagnosed with #idiopathicepilepsy
, which at this point i’d rather it be that then something worse. For now he is on #Keppra
for seizures and we are doing some intense detective work trying to rid the environment of any triggers that we can control.. heightened anxiety, loud noises, fragrance, chemicals, treats, spices, our parrots bird seeds, canceled our Orkin subscription.. we’re trying! We are also giving him a little cbd on the gums and I recently got some organic #frankincense #ylangylang
because I read that they help with seizures, but I just read something else that ylang ylang is toxic to them so I’m conflicted! If you guys have any tips on #dogseizures
we’d love any help we can get cause we are such nervous wrecks! We haven’t left him alone because the cluster seizures can be really dangerous and we want to make sure someone is always with him, which is HARD with our busy schedules. That being said we will be bringing them to work a lot more now so if you guys don’t mind for the time being, we ask that you don’t bring your kids with you to your appointments or your dogs because unfortunately our pups aren’t to be trusted with them! Thanks for everything guys!
