Bethenny Frankel is fond of her dog Cookie — so when the pup suffered a massive seizure — it was no surprise she freaked out!
On Saturday, Bethenny posted several gut-wrenching videos of her pup shaking uncontrollably for 45 minutes.
In the video, the frantic Real Housewives of New York star pled with her social media followers for help since the nearest vet was 40 minutes away.
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare everybody. My poor daughter and I are watching my dog have a seizure for 45 minutes and the [vet] hospital’s so far out.” Bethenny cried.
After the chaos, Bethenny reported that Cookie was unconscious but resting with a high temperature. During the seizure scare, Bethenny said she’d be putting her down if she didn’t recover.
The Skinnygirl mogul was slammed by fans for delaying the dog’s treatment and filming the incident and posting on social media instead.
Bethenny response to the backlash was that she left for the vet three minutes into Cookie’s seizure, and that she only resorted to social media out of desperation.
