AM - 1 mile walk outside with Finn, then 5 miles on the treadmill at 65% HRR which ended up being about 9:30 pace for most of it.   Hip is still not 100%, but getting closer.  Finn's vet gave us a script for anti-seizure meds which we started yesterday and it seemed effective.  It makes him slightly lethargic and not as amped up as he usually is, which kinda makes him now act a little more sedate, and chill.  I was concerned that the run on Sunday which was quite warm and humid may have contributed to the 4 seizures he had in 18 hours - e.g. maybe he was dehydrated, with an electrolyte imbalance - maybe he's having more advanced kidney issues...so, I think we will limit his exercise for a little while during the heat of the summer or at least until he adjusts to the meds.
