RIP Little Luke

Our 5 year old Yorkie Luke had a seizure yesterday morning so we took him to the Pet ER. He has had 5 or 6 more seizers between then & now & suffered brain damage. We had no choice but to let him go. He is now with his Sister Lexie that we lost about 6 months ago. You will be missed Luke.

Re: RIP Little Luke

Thanks everyone. It has been a tough few days for all of us. This happened so fast without warning. Luke has never been sick a day of his 5 1/2 years. The new pup Lola just runs around lost looking for her play mate. The other 2 don't play with her much.

Oh Steve and Sammie. So sorry about Luke. So darn cute. Yes, he and Lexie are running around in heaven enjoying the doggie park together. Hold your sweet memories close - it helps during this rough time.

Re: RIP Little Luke

So sorry to read this thread, Steve. You have my condolences for the loss of Luke. Yorkies are great companions and very loyal as I'm sure you know.

After you've had some time, can you let us know if there was any reason for the seizures? I have a soon-to-be 6 year old female. I'd be in sad shape if something happened to my dogter.

Thanks Lee
We will never know what caused Lukes seizures but HERE is some info we found on seizures in Yorkies. The vet thinks his was caused by a liver shunt but the labs that could tell us this were closed on the weekend. It only takes a blood test to check. A liver shunt bypasses the liver not allowing the blood to filter properly. This causes a built up of toxins in the blood that could cause seizures. We are having our other two tested as soon as we can for the shunt.

Re: RIP Little Luke

Sorry to hear the news, we have a little 6yr old female Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie). She has been suffering from seizures for about a year now. My wife has had her to the vet many times experimenting with different meds.
