Dr. Marsden has given us his email address so if something happens we can email him and he will get ahold of one of the vets at his clinic. If it is an emergency then we still have our regular vet and the emergency clinic. I do have a homeopathic remedy for seizure activity, it's called Stramonium. We give that to him if we see any weird, possible neurologic behaviour. We still have a few vials of Valium as well which can hold him over until Dr. Marsden emails me back. I'm sure he will have more specific instructions for us next week. He wanted the appt. next Friday so he can complete a full evaluation before he leaves
