Husky With Cluster Seizures Turns 12


Hooray! Legend is 12 years old! (We don’t know his exact birthday because he is a rescue but this was our best estimate.). Thanks so much for your love and encouragement when our sweet boy was so sick. When Legend was 9 he was experiencing horrific cluster seizures and spiraling downward, but he recovered. Seizures are especially common in certain breeds such as Border Collies, Golden Retrievers and Huskies.  Big hugs and thanks to Dr. David Gordon, holistic veterinarian Arch Beach Veterinary Clinic  and Dr. Michelle Murray, veterinary neurologist NEST Veterinary Neurology, for their unending concern and guidance in Legend’s care. Legend is living proof that holistic treatments really work! Even though he has hip dysplasia, epilepsy and endless allergies, he still has a wonderful quality of life and there is never a squirrel he isn’t ready to chase. Legend hasn't had a seizure in over 2 1/2 years. We are so grateful that our beloved Legend is still with us and do everything we can to cherish every day with him.
