RVT_ABQ's Puppy


Toast was about 3 months old in this picture. I am a vet tech at an emergency hospital and Toast was a victim of bad owners. He was diagnosed with juvenile epilepsy although the "owners" couldn't pay for the medication he needed to be on to stop the seizures. One night, he had multiple seizures and the people couldn't take it anymore and they brought him to my clinic to put him down. I saw this tiny 8 week old puppy and he looked so helpless. I never take home pets from the clinic because then I'd have a farm. He was different though. We got the people to sign him over to the clinic and I took over financial responsibility. He was in the hospital for about two weeks before I took him home. His name came about because whenever us techs would round we'd mention this puppy and how he was "toast" when he first came in. The nickname just kind of stuck and I kind of liked it. So there's the story of Toast. He's now 9 months old, healthy as can be, no seizures, and not on any medication (there's ~80% chance that pups below 3 months of age will grow out of their juvenile epilepsy).
