Hey guys, someone posted exactly the same issue 6 yrs ago but no one knew what was causing this. My fingers are crossed there has been some advances in testing since.
Monkey is a rescue, about 4-6 yrs old. He started these jaw shaking episodes a few months ago. Sometimes it’s mild and...
Herschel is 8. We have always fed him kibble
With no issues. In the past year he has began to have bouts with either choking, seizures or something else while eating. At first i thought seizure for sure. Then I noticed this always happens when he's eating or just finished eating so I thought...
I woke up this morning at 5 AM to a loud noise. Bubba normally sleeps on the bed I found him on the floor next to the bed. I don’t know if he fell off or he was on the floor and knocked over a small wall decor that was resting near bed, that I hadn’t hung up yet. When I found him he was not...
About a week ago our beloved Odin had some sort of choking episode. Up until this point we have been unable to tell what type of episode (seizure, choking, etc). This is the 5th time in 2 months it has happened.
He’s been at the vet for a few days, and because we have been unable to figure out...
Something weird just happened with Buster. I didn't see exactly how it started but the first thing I did see was him coming toward me, dry-humping, penis exposed. Then he started spinning and throwing himself around, shaking his head, then rubbing his face and head on the carpet. He never...
A bit of background. 4 days after we got Buster (7 weeks ago) we had entropion surgery done on his right eye. His eye was scarred and a mess. That is all healed up but his eye still looked very red and inflamed and his eye ointment wasn't helping. On Friday, I made an appointment at a pet...
I know I’ve mentioned this a few times in posts... If one of my pups had anything to do with Seizure, Head Tremor or Epilepsy, I personally would put them on a keto diet n of course Frankincense. Basically Ketogenic is a high fat diet. Here’s a good link with some studies...Good read...
Wednesday's episode was rather short and appeared to be a typical focal seizure. Today's was much longer lasting(4 minutes+) and varied in intensity. Head was moving up and down as opposed to the side to side motions I see most often. She was wide awake and completely aware the whole time...
Bella constantly likes eating grass. She does it all the time. Last weekend we caught her chewing on a long grass in the yard and the next morning at 1am she puked up a rather large amount of it when we were sleeping. For the following 15 minutes or so she kept hacking almost like dry-heaving...
I had to put my almost 10 yr old English bulldog Winston down last week.
It was sorta sudden. He was put on low dose Phenobarbitol for seizures, then deteriorated and had a massive seizure and has to be intubated and not lucid and I made the hard decision.
Im struggling with this cause I...
4/18/18: Please welcome Mimsy! On Tuesday we found out about this sweet little girl that was at Dekalb County Animal Control. We emailed our contact and were told “Thanks for inquiring about her. She is currently a court case and is not available for rescue or adoption at this time, but I will...
Augustus will be a special needs rescue and is looking for a special family to take him in. He has hydrocephalus and also a cleft palate that we have not been able to correct with multiple surgeries. 6/1/18: Augustus has had 2 surgeries now to correct his cleft palatte we are hopeful this one...
Hey everyone. This is going to be a novel, but alot has happened over the last two weeks and I really don't want to leave out any detail that might be important.
Two weeks ago I noticed that my Addy was acting a little off. She seemed to be panting alot and just generally kind of felt "off"...
I'm reaching out for any and all experienced information with grand mal seizures. My dog Wrigley Bear just started having seizure just before his 3 year birthday Nov 26th 2017 . He is a Victorian bulldog. Neutered , fully vaccinated, great health and not over weight 58...
Please welcome Thelma to our rescue family! She comes to us after a recent local puppy mill bust that involved the seizure of 132 animals. Thelma is 3 years old and only weighs 28 lbs. She is a mess health-wise, but everyone in the shelter loved her personality and came out to bid her adieu...
I wanted to update on Jameson. Monday morning Jameson was sleeping on our bed and I heard him get up to come eat. He has been sleeping through breakfast and eventually will get up and come eat. I heard a thump and I figured he jumped the remainder of the steps to get down. He didn’t...
I had hoped we weren't going to have this issue.... but it's been a long sleepless weekend. Effie has started having head tremors. I'm really shocked, because she's going to be 3 next January, and I really thought if she was going to have them, we would have seen them by now!
My husband was...
Duke has an issue eating fast like he doesn't want to miss any. Gave him his frozen smaller raw piece of meat and he's trying to chew with his newly teeth coming out. Had my back turned 5 SECONDS only and he's on his side choking like he's having a bad seizure. I immediately grabbed his neck n...
At first, documenting anything and everything Vegas related was very important to me. I wrote this article for a sister forum that has since been shut down. Thankfully Lisa was able to save this article from being deleted. Over the years I've referred people to this article simply to let them...
We have a 2 yr old MN chunk of love named Bugsy, who has been diagnosed with seizure disorder. The seizures started approx 1-3 months apart but since then have increased in frequency. Our vet ( who I work for also) started him on Zonisemide, which helped briefly i guess. April was a bad...
