[Read About Natural Incontinence Care] [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Silver Lab will be turning 2yo this Oct. 2017. I am hoping to find him a home where someone is home with him majority of the time. A fenced in yard to play in would be great. He currently has 2 acres to run with an underground fence. I am unable to give him the care he needs, after we adopted him he was diagnosed with Epilepsy and EPI. I believe the previous owner knew of these health issues and did not share with us. I was initially upset after the diagnosis but then just looked at is as we saved his life. Assuming he was not getting the medications he needed. Now after 6 months I have decided that we are unable to provide him with the care/love he needs. Due to our long work hours. 3 days after we adopted him he had a seizure, these continued and he is on medication for them. I believe they are now controlled, we have increased his medication slowly over the last 3 months. About 1 month after I brought him home I noticed he was loosing weight. He was diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) in Dogs. The pancreas is the organ in the body responsible for producing insulin (which regulates the body's blood sugar levels) and digestive enzymes (which aid in the digestion of starches, fats, and proteins in an animal's diet). He is on medications for this as well, he has been slowly gaining weight back. Ruger is only able to hold his bladder for 4-5 hours at a time, this is a problem for us since we work 10-14 hour days. Ruger is crate trained and is good with my 2 and 7 yo. We also have another lab they love to play outside together, and a cat. Cat and Dog pretty much mind their own business. Ruger loves to cuddle and play fetch. Please contact me if you are looking for a loving dog and able to provide him with love.
