About the Campaign

Having Seizures in the Animal Shelter

Gibson was found stray and taken into the San Diego Animal Shelter. In the shelter he was found having a seizure. As a senior dog, the shelter may have considered having to put him to sleep, so the Golden Retriever Club of Greater LA rescued him.

This rescue focuses on rescuing senior dogs, and Gibson is a senior. They got him to their vet and an initial exam showed that he has some sort of neurological condition.
He has tremors, and sometimes his head will tilt or his eyes not track properly. The vet took multiple x-rays, but they were inconclusive. Often x-rays do not show anything in these situations, because a lot of tissue injures and tumors will not show up. But, the vet also believes there is a possibility that Gibson was poisoned, either intentionally or not.

The bottom line

Gibson needs a MRI and possibly a spinal tap.  These tests are needed ASAP to go forward with the best treatment for Gibson! The rescue is asking for help paying for the tests, because they will then have to spend a lot for whatever course  treatment is required. Thank you!

    Every golden deserves to have an opportunity at happiness! I have one golden now and should anything happen to him I’d like someone to give the love and support he deserves.

    Our old golden started having seizures about two years ago, started him on CBD with a touch of thc, stops the seizure in less then a minute .Amazing stuff , you should try it before you guys do traumatic things like spinal taps, costs less too. Our boy is 15 .
    VET-CBD is the brand we use .
