My female has them. Several of her female offspring have them (siezures didn't start until a year or so after pups were born). They can be controlled. Scary the first time you see it. She is on barbiturates. Started out on high dosage to stop seizures. Gained 10 pounds in less than a month from all the sleeping. Halved the dosage and it really helped her activity level, and she has had 1 very mild seizure in several months. All about quality of life, theirs and yours. There are some insanely expensive treatments out there. Vets have boats too apparently. She's great now...just chunky. More tennis ball time is a good thing.
Your big guy is gonna be fine...just may take a while to find tune the meds, if you go that route.
