How Other Boston Terrier Owners Deal with their BT Having Seizures?


    Here is a Question from Joanne Rose-Foster asking about how other Boston Terrier owners deal with their BT having seizures.

    “My BT has recently started having seizures, we brought him to his vet and she done blood work which came back perfect! The vet actually said he was perfectly healthy But my poor BT has his last seizure yesterday and we are now going to have to put him on seizure meds.

    Joanne – My Gabby girl has epilepsy and has had seizures since she was 3. She’s 6 now. She is just like your baby – perfectly healthy except for the epilepsy. Blood work is always good, organs always healthy. It’s so very difficult. Gabby’s seem to be on schedule too – every 6 months. However, hers are becoming more severe to the point of not stopping. It’s one day at a time with us. She is on Zonisamide which for now, doesn’t seem to have any side effects. If the seizures increase since this last one this past Saturday, we… Read more »

Seizures are horrible to watch, but honestly they do NOT remember having them…… Read more »

    Thanks everyone for the comments, to answer some questions…no we donot use any pesticide or fertilizer, to the lady about the stress, our bt has no stress believe me!!!! 🙂 The weird thing about his seizures are that they are almost on schedule, the last couple have been 2 months apart and are always within a few days in the same month, his last one was the 2nd of the month and the one he had the other day was the 2nd of the month also, which is extremely odd!
