Common Questions and Answers about Dog seizure symptoms treatment

seizure

Avatar n tn The key is to document the timing when they happen. I had an old dog who had one known seizure when he turned 12, and that was it. If he had any others it was out of our sight, and that was the end of it. Hopefully that's what your experience will be as well.
Avatar n tn Lyme disease can cause neurological disorders, and epilepsy is a neurological disorder. The fact that your dog had a fever when she had the seizure leads us to believe that the seizure had an infectious cause. However, seizures themselves (if grand mal) can cause a dogs temperature to become elevated. Brain tumors can disrupt normal brain activity and therefore cause seizures. The problem is, if the Lyme disease is in the chronic stage it is very difficult to eliminate.
Avatar n tn When my dog was about the same age, he did the same thing, but that was the only known seizure he ever had. Make a note of the day and time it happened, and note any other seizures that may occur. If he has seizures more often, you'll need to get him on phenobarbital. Please don't be afraid of medicating your dog for seizures. A gorgeous Lab lives next door to us who began having seizures at about 3 years of age.
Avatar m tn It IS very scary to watch a beloved pet go through a seizure, particularly a grand mal seizure. At least with you and your husband both being nurses you kind of know what to expect and how to deal with it, so you are a bit ahead of the game there. When or if your Archie has another seizure, talk to him throughout the whole event in a reassuring voice. He WILL hear you even though it may seem like he doesn't.

Avatar m tn I've read many many many blogs about how dogs are reacting to Phenobarb treatment for seizures. It is so concerning and I am so confused what to do. For a few months after a lipoma removal surgery, our dog Ranger started to 'trip' while walking. Then a few days ago he had a seizure during the night and again about 9 hours later. We took him to the vet yesterday and were told they could try treating him for epilepsy, but it could also be a brain tumor causing the issue.
Avatar f tn shes due back at the vets tomorrow but I was wondering if anyone else had seen these symptoms in there dogs after a seizure,getting worried that something might be wrong...i would really appreciate any information...thank you....
Avatar f tn This dog accidentally got 37.5 mg of Deramaxx meant for another dog yesterday. Could this be related to his seizure? He just had another seizure 6 hrs. after the first one. Going to the vet for a blood draw this afternoon. *Our 4 year old Aussie just had a first seizure this morning. I have dealt with seizures before in another dog, but the aftermath of this is very different and hard.
Avatar m tn Has anyone had their dog get seizures as a side effect of the dog flu vaccine? And has keppra been successful as a sole treatment option?
570306 tn?1222713377 It can sometimes take several hours, sometimes a full day, for a dog to completely return to normal after a seizure. Your vet's first reaction in doing nothing was reasonable. Sometimes seizures happen and that's the one and only seizure a dog will ever have. However, now that your dog has had a second seizure and one that lasted so terribly long, you need to go back to your vet. Your dog will likely be put on phenobarbitol as a seizure preventive.
793908 tn?1294705109 Hi...I am so sorry for all your losses. It's so awful to lose your beloved pet. My heart goes out to you all. Next week. I am starting my beloved 9 yr. old mini Poodle Julie on Trilostane for confirmed Cushings Disease. She is 14 lbs.now & never stops drinking water & has to go outside way too much. Her appetite is immense. All of this is so abnormal with her, along with her "pot belly" & she is very non energetic.
Avatar m tn I have never heard of a vet requesting video of any dog behavior, as normally when people bring in seizure dogs, the vet will keep the dog for observation himself, and so any seizures can be treated immediately. I'm NOT a vet, and you description alone has told ME plenty to give you good advice on this. Back to possibilities: I have seen seizure dogs have their first seizure, pop out of it before the vet could run down the hall, and appear to be fine.
Avatar n tn My dog had liver shunt surgery on Wednesday, Nov. 19th. He began to seizure on Friday the 21st. After the 2nd seizure, we placed him on Propronol (sp?) and he "slept" until Monday the 24th. He has been removed from the Propronol treatment since Monday and has had one small seizure that seemed to be only a minor setback. I can find very little information regarding the potential outcomes from such events...he has had a very difficult week but is showing very small improvement.
Avatar f tn Try not to panic when it happens. Let the seizure run its course and keep your dog out of the way of things like furniture that may harm him. It's very common for dogs and humans to vomit, defecate and/or urinate in the course of a seizure. You'll want to make sure your dog doesn't breathe in stomach contents if he vomits. Recovery time is always necessary and at least an hour is usually needed. Some dogs may need the rest of the day to fully recovery.
Avatar f tn In my opinion, the slip, and the falling off the bed, followed by seizure is most likely your dog was starting to go into one. Usually they start getting disoriented before going into a seizure.
1939887 tn?1323790149 m not sure if this was her post-seizure face or if this was during a seizure. When I finally saw a seizure, they were tiny little things without any limb movement. It would just be a facial twitch or the muscles in her side. Very hard to detect in a fluffy dog! The cause of her seizures was a brain tumor. So this is a possibility with your dog. Be aware that if this is the case with your dog, she might inadvertently hurt you.
Avatar m tn Hello Johnny...IMO, NO this is not normal! Normally after a seizure, a dog will be tired, but be pretty much normal after 20 or so minutes.....Though not as common, 24 hrs. is possible...... Most Vets don't give much thought to 1 seizure...It's after a second or third that more attention is paid....I personally would be back at your Vet Monday to better evaluate your guy..... The elevated Liver enzymes may be a clue, but these continuing effects (Ataxia) is again, NOT normal!
Avatar n tn food is working well for your dog. I now have a dog with a very sensitive tummy, and noticed that brand in the pet store. Since I hadn't really noticed it before, it's great to have a personal recommendation, so thanks for posting your experience.
Avatar f tn Sorry but this is just odd. Does your dog even have a seizure disorder? I have never heard of such a thing.
Avatar m tn my dog was only 2yrs old though.
Avatar f tn my 6 year old lab had a seizure today. his second. he had an episode in nov. i raced him to the vet on that occasion. they charged me 230, and told me he had a tummy ache. he has some lesions on his forelegs, he won't leave them alone, with the licking! they are much better now, but they seem to be holding some fluid. yes, the vet saw those too. seemed to be not concerned. he is a hunting dog, and being a lab, he will go straight through brush and thorns.
