16 yr old onset of seizures

Hi, I am here along with my two girls Brownie who is a spayed 16 yr 9 m old chi/border terrier/ Lhaso mix that I have had since she was 6 wks, and Sadie she is a spayed 1 yr old schnoodle rescue I have had her since Sept 2011 . Brownie has stage 2 Renal disease and most recently the past three weeks began having seizures a total of four and every one of them have been while eating which is what's puzzling me. three days ago she had one day of vaginal bleeding and greenish discharge the vet visit and labs showed a high WBC , GGT ( has something to do with the liver) & NEU. The vet thinks it's a possible tumor somewhere. It's tearing me up. I am struggling so bad with the thought of possibly losing her. They gave her an inj of covenia antibiotics and B-12 she is feeling better today that's why I wonder if it was a UTI. one other new behavior is at times she can't get enough to eat she is literally ravenous so I feed her a bit more. she has lost weigh and is down to 10 lbs and sleeps all day.

Thank you glad to be here, Colleen, Brownie button & Sadie bug

Have you ruled out lyme disease? It can cause seizures and also renal disease, uti's and high wbc.

Hoping for the best for your dog.
