Lucky has a reported history of seizures that began in 2016. He was surrendered today because unfortunately his owner didn’t feel they could manage his medical needs long term, and he reportedly had a seizure around 6:30am this morning, as well as one shortly after his initial medical exam. Lucky needs placement by 6pm today and will need care at a 24 hour vet immediately.
