    Unhappy Max Update:

    Well i have just returned from the vets, with no Max, he started fitting again today and he cant breadth and he is only getting over one fit when he enters into another one.

    the vet is going to keep him in and put him on a drip and give him phena barbatol, now the deal here is if the phena barbatol doesnt work it means he has a brain tumour, if it does stop him fitting it means he has eplilepsy.

    Either way it doesn't look good. i have never seen a dog in the condition Max is in... its breaking my heart.... he couldn't even cough, the vet said if it is eplipesy he can reverse this, as he feels Max is exhausted from the constant fits. he feels we may loose Max as his heart will just stop, he said if this happens... 1. it will be quick and he wont suffer and 2. he is in the right place.

    my vet is on duty all weekend so i know Max wont be alone...

    been crying for hours now..... crossed paws for max XXX
    thanks

    I am so sorry to hear about Max. I will keep him in my thoughts and wish feverently for his recovery. I'm sure he's in very competent hands and it is very good to know that he's not alone.

    Many hugs for you during this most difficult time!

    Fidelma,

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Hopefully, the vet can find out exactly what's wrong with Max and then you can start to make it better. I understand how you must be feeling right now.

    My thought are with you right now.
