Hi Sage. She turned 4 Oct. 31 -- she's a Halloween baby. She just got up about a half-hour ago -- it's about 5:20 am , here. She walks without synchronicity, like a person after a stroke, but her personality is still mainly there. She gave me a morning kiss, but her level of energy is way down.
Hunt terriers most like a really hyper Jack Russell, but,she's not that way, now. the doc said it could take three weeks to adjust to the meds.
I know how you feel about herbals, and I am learning, slowly. But, She has had seizures, reguarly, through her lifetime. Pheno-barb is a very old, tested, anti-convulsive; it's cheap, and I don't have to experiment. I'm willing to experiment with herbs and other alternatives on myself, but I want the dogs problenms to be gone, now. We have had this option for a long time, but we didn't want to go that route unless absolutely necessary. Now, it is necessary. The pheno-barb might not work; If it doesn't , I will be asking you for advice, and I thank you for the offer.
I'm glad you are so busy. What is the old saying: "Make hay while the sun shines" ..... take care..........
