Our 14-year old Australian Shepherd just had a big seizure

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

Ozzie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ozzie?

No other than that he's old
