Baxter_Linda Meyers

Say hello to Baxter, another of the many who fight the epi-monster. Baxter is a Maltese who started having seizures when he was one & a half years old.

Baxter is fortunate in that he has responded well to his medications, however his family & Vet have had to change & adjust them on occasion. We are happy to say, at the time of writing this, he is 5-1/2 months seizure free.

His huMom Linda says, ” Loved him from the moment I saw him at 9 weeks old. He means the world to me & my husband. Wouldn’t give him up anything. Luv him SO much. We are blessed that his epilepsy is well controlled. Prayers to all dogs living with epilepsy.”

It’s clear to me that Baxter is much loved. Stay strong & seizure free my fellow Epi-Warrior.

My canine Epi-Warriors, this month in our lead up to Purple Day ( March 26th) we want to share your tale. Send us your picture & a short bio. We will share it here. Lets put a face on canine epilepsy. You can send it to us on our Facebook page or you can email us at knottytoys4gooddogs@gmail.com

Epi-Warrior Riley

Canine Culture, News

Riley Living the life of Deanne Tanksley

Today we meet Riley. He & I met through social media. He has his own Facebook page too,  Living the Life of Riley !  His pawsome huMom wrote this about him.

“Riley. A picture of quiet strength. He has idiopathic epilepsy & has since we found him in November, 2008. He’s somewhere between 10 & 12 years old. He lives with 4 sisters & 4 brothers, all non-epis. Collectively, they are the Tanksley Thundering Herd. His longest seizure free streak was almost 2 years. Shortest, recorded in 2016 at 9 days. He takes three different medications throughout his day, but he gets treats after each so he doesn’t mind. He is a gentle boy. Easy to care for, easier to love. He handles his condition because it a part of who he is. He loves soaking in the sun & sleeping on his special cloud bed.”

It’s obvious that Riley has a wonderful home with a big pack to support him. All dogs should be so fortunate.

Stay Strong Riley ❤ nose nudges ❤
