Customer Question
Hello, my boxer had...

Hello, my boxer had a seizure last week. Got her bloodwork back and everything was normal except her red blood cell count was in the lower end of normal. Now all the sudden she is lethargic and just laying in the floor breathing kind of heavy. She wont take a treat which is highly abnormal. Shes alert but just not herself

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is your dog's name and age?

Daisy and she is 9

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

She recently had surgery. Gum growth removal and a growth in her foot/toe removed. She takes proin for incontinence.

I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? Can you describe the seizure you witnessed? Did they place her on any medication on her most recent visit?
