Fitting

So Frank my 8 month old boy has been fitting. My vet decided to refer him to a neurologist. He went yesterday and stayed over night. I missed him! Anyway, he had a bile acid stim test - came back normal. MRI - normal. Spinal tap - normal. Turns out he has idiopathic epilepsy. So turns out he does have a brain in there. I have had to seek the advice and help ofba behaviourist as he was ridulous, I just could not train him and to see if he could help with the dog aggression issues. Basic training such as sit was difficult for him to learn butbhe is doing better now.

A picture of his shaven bit, you can see where they put the huge needle for his spinal tap.

A picture from one of our training sessions where he actually sat and ignored a dog walk by. I was so proud of him!

I am glad your vet and a behaviorist were able to help with your Frank. He is a very handsome boy and I hope you'll have continued progress.
