    I have some devastating news. Boka had 2 seizures today and it is most likely a brain tumor. She could just be an epileptic dog but it is most likely a brain tumor. Tomorrow we will be calling the vet and asking him if it is safe to still do the surgery. Also, I am definately not putting her down as other than the occasional seizure, she eats just like a bully, she drinks normally, she sleeps a lot, and she jumps whenever she is excited. She also jumps up and down the bed all by herself and she doesnt seem to be in any pain. I am absolutely devastated by the news. I am hoping that she will live at least for another year or so. The vet said that if it is a brain tumor, he can give her some steroids to lower the size of the tumor and he even said that it can increase her lifespan by a few months. But we are not sure whether it is safe to take her in for surgery when she is taking her medicine. I am fine with her having surgery to remove the mass, but I am terrified that she can have a seizure during the operation and not wake up. I am hoping for the best.

    I'm sad to hear this news, was just thinking about Boka over the week end
    and now, seeing this news devastates me for y'all, can't stop my tears.
    Boka's a fighter (of course, she's a BULLY) and so are you so I'm going to
    rally myself, stop sniveling and stand behind Team Boka.

    Continued prayers for y'all and big love sent from Texas.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Oh no... This is so sad news
    But it is good to know that Boka eats, drinks, sleeps, jumps, is excited and seems not to be in any pain. What a brave strong sweet little girl
    I totally understand your worries about the operation with this circumstance and I continue keeping my fingers crossed very hard that it is no brain tumor.
    Many many hugs to your sweet bullygirl and to you

    It's very uncommon for a 9 year old bulldog to be diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy. At the age of 9, there is usually a reason. It could be many things.

    I'm glad you didn't put her down.... she can still have a happy life. Our neurologist told us that if Vegas had a brain tumor he would start to show signs. He would no longer be able to control his hind quarters. Luckily for us, it was not a tumor.

    You said earlier that Boka was running into the wall after a seizure and I want to let you know that it is common to do that. When they come out of a seizure (even before the seizure) they become confused. Vegas does this all the time before and after a seizure.

    I also want to let you know that seizure meds don't always control them 100%. We still go on average, every 3 to 6 weeks between seizures. He's been on seizure meds for over 7 years.



    Keep us updated on her progress.

    I'm not sure if it will work but there has been many testimonials of Nuvet plus shrinking tumors. On their website their is testimonials and I've been asked a few times about it.

    Hopefully it's not a tumor though. Seizures can happen for so many reasons, and she is a beautiful girl!
