Yayyyy Mako!!! @voodoolamb I know that diet has to be a chore to prep and monitor. Every hat I own goes off to you, friend. It is obviously producing positive results! Mako is so lucky to have you ❤️❤️❤️

Naaahhh.

Mako isn't lucky to have me. It's the other way around - I'm lucky to have him! ^_^

This is great news and happy for both of you. I think the loyality you both have for each other is evenly matched.

Just wanted to give another update on Mako...

We are averaging 1 - 2 seizures a month. Still pretty much the same treatment plan, though he does have more leeway in the diet now. We are definitely figuring out triggers. We may try another med in the future, see if we can find one that doesn't make him a sick zombie and actually works to see if we can further reduce the frequency.

The important thing though, is for the most part he has his life back! We celebrated his 2nd birthday last month, he's a man-dog now!!!

Here are a few videos I took last week during some of our adventuring:
