Bunny is a friendly bulldog who was found wandering along the highway. Skinny as a stick and riddled with ear and eye infections she certainly needed help, and Will and Cindy Sherman rose to the occasion. Bunny got good food, vaccines, toys, and checkups.
When Bunny developed a cough related to her heart worm treatment, Will took her back to the vet. She got a steroid shot and they returned to the car – where the world went black.
Bunny bolted to the vet’s office and barked and scratched at the door until the receptionist opened – and saw Will convulsing with half his body in the car.
Luckily, help was close. People streamed out of the office – including an EMT who knew what to do.
Thanks to Bunny’s swift intervention, Will could be rushed to the hospital, and the attack was diagnosed as a grand mal seizure. These are caused by an abnormal electrical activity in the brain, most often triggered by epilepsy, but also by low blood sugar, high fever, or a stroke. Many people who have a grand mal seizure will never have another one. Nothing like that ever happened to Will before, and he hasn’t had another seizure since.
Doctors say that if help hadn’t arrived so quickly, the outcome come have been very bad. Luckily, Bunny was there, and repaid her rescuer in a way no one could have anticipated.
