Wearing purple for epilepsy awareness

Flocko

Day 82, 2012 March 26 is Purple Day, supporting epilepsy world wide. Flocko is our poster boy for canine seizures. We’re very lucky, we have them managed with phenobarbital but when they break through it is very frightening. We don’t know what triggers them, but we monitor his blood levels to keep the pheno at therapeutic levels.

When we brought Flocko home, we knew he had seizures and in hind sight, I would still adopt a dog that suffers from them. He is an amazing pet, we love him with all of our hearts.
