Customer Question

My eight year old golden had 2 seizures within 2 days and then has been fine for a week.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Sparky
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sparkly?
Customer: He is somewhat overweight 100lbs and has had hip dysplasia since 1 year old. Has been on Deramaxx ever since.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, this is Dr. Gabby.

Can you describe the seizures for me? What did he do? How long did they last?

Did you take him to the vet after and was any blood work done?
