Comments... Gretchen remains an otherwise healthy and active dog, with no health problems other than epilepsy. She first had a seizure a month before her 4th birthday (April 3/06), and has only experienced 2 others to date. She is on a very low dose of phenobarb at this time, and exhibits no side effects from the medication, and has not had any more seizures (although no pattern of seizures has been established at present, it's only been 3 months since the onset). Unfortunately, she was bred in 2005 and produced a litter prior to her epilepsy (NEVER would I have even considered breeding her had I known this would happen), and this is an ongoing concern for me. One puppy died of seizure disorder at 12 weeks, at that time we considered it incidental and possibly unrelated to epilepsy. However, with the onset of Gretchen's seizures months later, the picture is much more clear in that puppy's death. Recently another puppy has experienced a seizure at 9 months of age, his owners and myself will pursue his treatments and continuing health. Gretchen will be spayed shortly, ending a very successful show career much too early, but that is minor in the big picture. She remains in excellent health otherwise, an easy keeper and was an exceptional breeding animal with regular cycles, easy whelper and great mother. A shame, but she is precious to me as my companion and her future health and that of her puppies will always be a big concern.
