I recentley lost a very close member of my family and a very good friend it was my baby girl Tadpole. she died nov. 17 2010 from main cause k-9 epilepsy the medicine she had to take from these medicine phenobarital and potassium bromite, after time these medicine can cause liver damage which in turn eventally cause liver failure and the other is a stomach ulcer which can start to bleed which is what happened to her, I would like to some how set up a k-9 epilepsy foundation in her name so that more studie's can be done on this horriable disease and more studie's also need to be done to treat this in a much safer way. I truely hope to get this done so that death from this will not be in vain and that other's can be spared the pain that she ended up going through from this disease. I have seen and delt which to much of this disease I lived through my mother and her epilepsy and after an accident at age 14 was cursed with the disease myself.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my mom had epilepsy and after so many year's of taking the medication her bodie became allergic to the medicine. I have also cared for a german sheperd with k-9 epilepsy as well as myself

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get out more information on the subject of k-9 epilepsy. and see to it that more studies were done to try and find a safer way to treat it. in k-9's
