Within two weeks of starting Sentinal this year, my Aussie had a seizure. Both my Aussies took Sentinal last year and neither has ever had a seizure before.
I'm pretty sure what you call Australian Shepherds are called Blue Heelers here (Australia). The sad thing is they are well known to have a number of genetically inherited neurological issues (deafness is very common followed by epilepsy) as well as being prone to developing cancer at around 5-6 years of age. You'll have to ask the Vet about Sentinal but unless they were overdosed somehow it seems unlikely.
They are absolutely fantastic dogs if you have the energy to exercise them enough (a park, tennis ball AND the tennis racquet or one of those long handled Chinese tennis ball throwers). The originals were a mixture of Border Collie, Kelpie and Dingo/camp dog I believe, but have bred true for over 100 years and are a recognised breed.
Dogs; you've got to love them. Steve. :)
