Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old english bulldog and she is 13 years old. She has had 2 seizures in the past month. When this happens she gets stiff and shakes. They last less than a minute

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?

Jahada

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jahada?

She has hip trouble and walks slow. Takes her a while to stand up and move

Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Jahada. Has she had a history of seizures prior to these two in the last month? Has she had any other changes in her health - losing weight, not eating well? Have you had her to your vet for them to evaluate her because of these?
