Seizure in beagles

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure in beagles


Avatar f tn It has been two days since his last seizure but he still hasn't fully recovered, he doesn't know his commands, the people in the house ( including me ), or the other dogs and cats in the house. I want to know if he will even recover from this or if there is something I can do to help. He keeps pacing and whining, even in the middle of the night. Should I bring him in again? Could there be something more serious going on?
Avatar n tn The vets I took him to always perscribed prednisone. I think this has caused him problems. He had a seizure and I took him to the Vet and was told they would charge me $3,000.00 to run some tests. These foks really did not care about my Guy, mainly my debit card. About 1 year ago I noticed his kidneys or liver is slightly swollen. Even though this was obvious he was still given this drug. I was not happy with this Vet but I did give him this medication.
Avatar m tn Originally, we had them in separate kennels, but Bella would still pee in her's because she still had space to go pee in one corner and use the remainder of the space to lay down and sleep. We now have BOTH dogs in ONE kennel during the night (and don't worry; the kids saw to marrying them first so they wouldn't be “shacking-up”, unmarried. Bella wore a dress with a train and Romeo wore a shirt and tie. My son (5 yrs old) officiated.
Avatar m tn Doc thought it could be atypical seizures or serious brain issue. Jotts and I would walk 1.5 miles in the mornings and very active play in the evening (fetch, smelling, hiking) as he's a very active 1 yr old beagle but he's not been interested in those activities in the past week. He's also somewhat edgy/nervous and will snap at you. He has always been a sweetheart - never aggressive.
Avatar m tn He said not much could be done, might outgrow them and gave us some vitamines as a supplement for her diet (oh she was also the runt in the litter and is not inbred). So in May she had a very very mild one and then in the last three weeks two more... What happens next? Waht can we do? Do they get worse? WE feel sooo helpless and heart broken watching her...
Avatar f tn Beagles can have specific and predisposed illnesses in later years, but not all beagles get these conditions. Your vet should certainly examine for hypothyroidism, spinal problems and - very definitely - idiopathic epilepsy. This should not be left untreated, as it could shorten her life substantially. Once diagnosed properly and a sound treatment plan is started, she should continue to enjoy a normal life.
Avatar m tn She is not on any medicine at this point and it was only in on the anti-seizure medicine for several days with no improvement in the twitch or Tremors as we may call them. Her lethargy has gone away and her appetite has improved and she is back to pretty much for normal self. I think some of her behavior was related to my wife and I being gone for a good 10 to 12 days due to a death in the family. The Twitches of the ears did not seem to occur while walking her or when she is laying down.
Avatar n tn Since bringing her home see has been experiencing the following behaviors. Excessive panting (worse than initially) , especially in the evening hours. Last night she carried on from 6pm – midnight before finally settling down to sleep. But once she wakes up she is panting again. When she is at rest, she shivers and twitches constantly when she inhales.

The only time I saw any conflict between the two dogs was when we fed Tasha. Cody would bound up, expecting to share in Tasha’s bounty. However, Tasha would bare her teeth and growl menacingly. Cody would change his strategy, dropping to his belly and inching slowly toward Tasha’s dish. But this ingratiating behavior did not impress Tasha.

They are bad news and the withdrawal from those is worse than vicodin. I have detoxed on my own 3 times and I am on day 5 of hopefully my last detox ever. I could never ever was always all or nothing and if you have them in the house you will take them. I have 2 small children as well and a full time job.
Avatar n tn If you can't get to the vet within an hour or so, put the sample in the fridge. There's no need to jump to the cancer conclusion just yet. In the meantime, don't feed a bunch of fatty foods. If you feed steak, cut off any excess fat. If your dog has a pancreas problem, fat can be deadly. Are there any other symptoms you've noticed? Increased or decreased water intake? Constipation or diarrhea? Bowel noises? Gas? Any observations will help your vet with a diagnosis.
