Aloha Captain Rico,
Not sure you are aware about the Exposure of Rutland Manor? Here is the link. Don't be shocked!

My dog is from Sunsethills Labradoodles, but the bloodline problem was from VALLEY VIEW. We thought Sunsethills had a great reputation. How wrong we were! A LONG story! We just won our complaint against her. Only with the help of 2 other AL breeders (in Australia & the States)were we able to find this out!!
Anyway all those breeders, to avoid inbreeding exchange stud dogs. If you look at your dogs Pedigree, look for anything from VALLEY VIEW line! My dogs mother is NOT Epileptic, but her Father (=my dog's Grand father)is on the Melbourne Genetic Data base as an Epileptic dog. This was known to our breeder for 4 years and she still continued with that blood line! My dogs pedigree has apart from Sunsethills, lots of Tegan Park, Cloudcatcher, Valley view & Rutland Manor! Your Rusty seems as PERFECT personality as our Darling Jasper!
For more help join k9epilepsy@yahoogroups and READ on Guarding Angels about Dog Epilepsy. One of the BEST sites for help. I got some great advise from Dr. Jean Dodds, who is one of the founders. I am NOT using any Medication, but having great success on her NATURAL APPROACH advise. Let me know, if you are interested. Got so much more info, as I have been researching for nearly a year now. Cheers. Kirsy

    Dear Kirsty and Jasper, Rusty came from Rutland Manor in Australia, and they have absolutely no history of any seizures in his blood line. Where did your dog originate? I live in Hawaii. Rusty seems... more

            I can't believe, even TEGAN PARK? I am not surprised about my Dogs genetic inherited Epilepsy now! His blood line is connected to all 3 Breeders. Just very disappointed in SUNSETHILLS LABRADOODLES,... more

            The Grandfather's name is VALLEY VIEW TEDDY BEAR. But the whole Valley View Bloodline produced MANY Epileptic Puppies. Therefore should have been culled! He is not the ONLY one. Valley View denies... more

              Hi kirsy, That's a shame. A friend of mine has a Labradoodle (not an AL though) who developed epilepsy out of the blue when she was about 5 years old. The best thing she found was to contact... more

                That's great Alex. One seizure in 8 months is nothing to worry about. Keep it up. Kirsy

            I think you are right Alex. It is a combination of things. Certainly the high risk of Epilepsy in all those dog breeds MIXED UP doesn't help. For that we got the PERFECT Dog personality wi and the... more

              The Grand Mal seizure was recent - July 27 -- so I'm hoping that high temps and rotten flood flesh were triggers and it was not idiopathic (genetic) though of course the tendency is now established... more
