Our original vet said that puppies that have seizures usually test normal for everything and when that happens they will diagnose idiopathic epilepsy and put them on pheno, which is exactly what happened, except hubby and I didn't accept that diagnosis as they had also told us that puppies don't get epilepsy. So we went from vet to vet until we found one that didn't settle for the "idiopathic, easy way out because they didn't know what was happening" diagnosis. Had we not pushed it and found someone willing to try, we would have most likely lost our baby as he wouldn't have gotten the treatment needed for meningitis. Again, I wish you the best and I hope your vet is attentive and doesn't write something off because the "symptoms" don't fit.
