Hi to all. I own a Belgian shepard, at list that is what i was told. The problem is that the dog is having epilepsy, once in a while the last time was today and the previous time about a month ago. I ask the opinion of a veterinarian and told that this could happen to a shepard between 5 and 15 months. Also told me that there is some kind of therapy but costs a lot and the results maybe is not what i'm going to expect, and leave the dog as it is. Do you know something else any experience of your own.
Thanks :!:

I don't know where you live but it sounds as though your vet lives on Mars. I would definitely get a second opinion as epilepsy is treatable and a vet can best determine when to start the treatment.

I totally agree with Sara. That is absurd for your vet to tell you that. Your pet can be put on medication to help stop the seizures.
