Well, at 10 weeks of age, we now have another seizing baby, Stuart Little. Stuart is at the vet right now. We need a sponsor for Stuart so we can see what is going on. Stuart may have Horner's disease, too, in addition to having a seizure problem. His estimated medical bill, for treatment of his ear infection (consistent with Horner's), a liver profile, including bile acids testing and observation, is at about $100 with our rescue discount. PLEASE, if anyone can help us, we are all totally depleted. I have $100 in the puppies (the other two, Skye and Sunny), as does Skye and SUnny's foster. Please crosspost if you can help. I will post their story below. We've come so far to see this happen. Please let me know if you've helped so I can thank you.

God Bless each of you for crossposting or sponsoring the babies.
Here is their story:
With the help of others in the community, I recently (about 10 weeks ago) rescued a starved mother dog and her 7 babies from the animal shelter I work with. She came from a farm that had at least 20 dogs
running loose, some feral, on the property. Their owner murdered a guy in town
and was locked up. His family has a hx of animal abuse and neglect. The babies
were supplemented, and grew to be healthy bouncing babies. About 2.5 weeks ago,
the first puppy started seizing. Last week, another, and now, last night, yet another.
These puppies are fully developed. A liver shunt was ruled out on the first puppy.
We have them on phenobarb and valium, in addition to many natural supplementations.
We have consulted with 2 homeopaths. We cannot figure out WHAT is causing these
babies to seize. They are free of parasites. The first puppy began seizing at
8 weeks of age, the second at 9 weeks, and the third at 10 weeks. I am so freaked
out here. First, we don't have another foster home that can take the third seizing
baby. My friend already has the other two. The puppies seizing are Sunny, Skye
and Stuart. Stuart would have been the one we would have expected to seize because
he was very premature and much farther behind in development than the others. he
has caught up now. Skye was first, Sunny second and Stuart third. Skye never got a distemper-parvo. The rest have. Sunny started seizing 2 days after vacc. Stuart, 1 week after vacc. PLEASE, help. I'm so desperate.
I am out of resources for these babies.
