The vet said it wouldn't be that though. Anyhow, her other episodes were definitely not vaccine related or any product related type times. We have no real diagnosis yet, but no episodes either so that's a good thing. We are right now doggy sitting my son's 4 year old Pom who just recently had a seizure. Their vet can't find anything wrong with the dog, but they were going away and were afraid to leave her in a kennel so soon after the seizure so now I spend my nights listening to see if she's sleeping or seizing... And my days walking three dogs! So far so good, no episodes for the wee one.
