    I only had to watch a few seconds of the video.....that is a petit mal seizure. Vegas neurologist calls them bubble gum fits. Almost like there is something stuck to the roof of the mouth. I had posted a few videos yesterday...but forgot to hit POST, so I will do it again.

    Facial twitching

    @Annie1991
    I dont think those are tremors either...Its more fly biting as Brutus did but there is more movement that brutus....Brutus would bite up and not usually around and such...Our vet did say biting was partial seziure and started him on pheno...we took pheno for about 1 mnth or so and we decided to wean him off and see how he does...I didnt want him to be dependednt on it so we tried snacks at night and giving him more excerise...He hasnt had an episode since I would wait to see what Cheryl has to say about this but Im leaning towards it being partial sezuire...We go back to the nuerologist next week so I will show him the video and see if I can get some more advice for you...Were you able to see the video I posted in your other thread of Brutus fly biting

    @Annie1991...

    So sorry to hear about Punk's problem, will put you & her on my prayer list.

    I'm in Tyler, TX, about 30 minutes from Longview and so is another EBN member
    @catorres, hopefully she can suggest a Vet as she has 2 bullies.

    There is a Vet here in Tyler, Dr Michael Maris @ 903-561-7373 that is a Bully
    Vet, I believe...not confirmed and not used as I've just adopted an older Bully
    just 2 months ago. Welcome to EBN and good luck w/Punk.



    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    @Annie1991...so sorry, I gave the wrong tag for Crystal, the EBNer from Tyler,TX
    that might be able to suggest a good Bully Vet.

    Correct tag is catorres8988

    RIP beloved boy.

    Thanks so much for everyone's help. I will rename the video when I get home tonight. We cannot access YouTube here at work. I will try giving her some Karo or honey during the episodes and wean her off the pheno. I'm just not comfortable giving her this medicine because of the effects. If the vet in Tyler is a bully vet I will start taking her there.

    I will watch the videos tonight at home. We cannot access YouTube here at work. Thanks much. I had hoped it would not be seizures. She has these several times a day. I counted 4 one day. They only last for about 1-2 minutes each. If the vet in Tyler is a bully vet, I will start taking her there. Thank you so much for everything.

    I would speak to a bully vet to see how they want to go about weaning her off the pheno..Sometimes if not done properly it can cause seziures...

    Found a vet in Tyler that is supposed to be bully-wise. Shelley Drive Animal Clinic - Dr. Mike Maris. Put in a call to have him call me back and I'm going to have him look at the video here and see what he says. I hope that I do not have to keep her on the pheno. I hope that the karo or honey will be what he recommends. I will keep you guys posted. Thanks Much ! ! !

    @Annie1991...Oh, I'm soooo excited that the Tyler Vet I mentioned to you might be of help PLUS...if not too exhausted
    hoping you & Punk can stop by and visit us! We've got a big shady yard and Mr Brutie is very laid back & mellow.

    Our Ph# 903-787=8431 Let us know!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
