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


Here is a Question from Joanne 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.

Wondering how other BT owners deal with their BT having seizures and how was the BT after having to take seizure meds?”

I agree with the others posting to just stay as calm as you can, don’t move them, just sit next to them and talk calmly…letting them know you are there is the best thing you can do.
