Diane has had Buddy the springer spaniel since a pup. A typical lively dog full of fun and love but then suddenly from the age of 3 became unwell and he had his first seizure.Over the last few years Buddy has had many of these and has been sadly diagnosed with IDIOPATHIC EPILEPSY. This can be very scary and debilatating as the seizure activity can last longer than 30 minutes and can come in clusters but also may result in problems with recovery of consiousness. So Buddy has been on meds for some time and they seemd to be working ok. He had a mild seizure in february but On Saturday 7th April he had a very serious attack and was given emergency meds but sadly when they left his system he went into status epileptocus . He as taken to the dick vet where he is now but his treatment and vet bills are ever increasing.
Like most dog owners Diane does have pet Insurance but it only covers up to £2000 worth of treatment and most of that has been claimed for the treatment received. His current bill is £3000 and increasing daily, they are about to do another MRI and the bill is expected to hit around £4000 +. They also fear he may have a tumour but this poor dog has the will to live so lets try help.
This is a plee to try and raise some funds to help pay the costs and hope they can find the a long term med which will ensure Buddy has a long and very happy life.
