Avatar m tn Two seizures after 7 months is NOT really bad, but I can understand your concern. If he was having seizure after seizure with little to no break room in between I would be a lot more concerned. It might be that you need to increase his dose a bit. If he has another one over the weekend, I would contact a local emergency vet and go explain the situation to them. Otherwise, keep him quiet until you speak with your own vet on Monday. And PLEASE write back and let us know what he says.
Avatar f tn I rinse it all when it's done then give him a cup in the morning cup at night sometimes I put honey in it if I think his levels r getting high.

Which u could give apple cider vinegar even for us humans breaks down the stone but still try to stay away from meds!
1262982 tn?1269974369 Her head wobbled in circles for a few seconds, then she shook her head and fell over, so I put her back in her bed with the blankets and warmth... I want to know if she is going to be like this from now on, or if this is maybe because of the narcotic pain meds she is on? and if she does have a brain injury does this mean she will be affected forever? and will she be retarted? Has anyone experienced this? if so what was the outcome?...thank you all so much for your help in advance!!!! Heather.
Avatar f tn My 5-6 month old puppy Ginger hit her head on the bottom of a coffee table tonight running full speed in mid-leap up onto the couch... she always falls or jumps or hits herself places and bounces right back, so when she started playing with our friend's dog a few minutes later, running around the house and eating all of her playmate's food... Then about 40 minutes later she came across the hall to our place, threw up and started walking around wobbly, disoriented and half-awake...
Avatar f tn I just want to know If any one else has had the same or similar side effects with these medications and if you saw any improvements in your dog, and in how long of a time. She looks so miserable and it breaks my heart to see her like that. I’ve already done blood work and an X-ray and it all came back clear. If there is no improvement I have to take her to a neurologist, which is really expensive.
543578 tn?1214415607 I have a 2 1/2 year old male Reindeer Chihuahua, and a few weeks ago while my friend was puppy sitting and called me and said to come home that he thinks Buster (my dog) is having a seizure. So of course I came home and he seemed fine. I asked what happened he said that Buster just started to shake and making this weird face and his mouth was like distorted and he started foaming at the mouth then it was over.
Avatar f tn She was prone to it when there were extreme changes in the weather, and she would wind up kind of freezing in her steps and just shaking...couldn't walk forward, backward or to the side..just stood and shook. I know that she knew we were there with her, and I remember her eyes showing fear. We used to try to steady her with our hands and speak gently to her, trying to calm her and reminding her that we were with her.
Avatar m tn I'm really sorry, almost in tears as I read this at work. I am going through this with my 8 year old chihuahua in 2019. My heart is so heavy. He is the glue to our little family. Today we are visiting the vet, and after $7,000 in vet expenses I fear my little guy is nearing the end. For those reading this, there are now some Vets who do make house calls. I am highly considering this.
202123 tn?1208054800 My 1 year old pure bred Chihuahua has been having seizures.The first one was on Saturday and the last one was on Thursday morning.I took him to the vet and they ran blood work and all was clear.They kept him for observation and he hasn't had any seizures since.They also put him on some meds! Anyways I'm extremely worried about my baby because he is normally hyper,playful,constantly humping his toys and now all he does is sleep.
Avatar f tn The yelping before hand might make you wonder if there is something hurting him that could be causing the seizure, something inside him that the approaching seizure triggers causing him pain, or if it just his way of responding to the approaching seizure? In Idiopathic Epilepsy the vocalizations prior to the seizure are said to be involuntary and not painful. The drinking afterward could possibly be diabetic related.
Avatar n tn Hello, My 2yr (7lbs) chihuahua mix had a seizure. I've think she may have had a simple focal seizure (per websites visited). Molly didn't fall over and seize nor did she expel urine or drool. She was upright with open eyes. My questions: What are the causes? (couldn't get a clear understanding from the websites visited) Can the seizures cause damage to her body? When should I have seen by the vet?
Avatar f tn my 2 year old chihuahua has been wheezing or snorting hard to explain it doesn't happen very often but when it does happen he seems to happen after he has had some water or after playing he all of a sudden starts snorting like his whole little body goes into a seizure type jerk but its aint a seizure he is fully aware on whats going on and comes to you when ever u call him when these attacks happen and usually last about 5 minutes its like he has to gasp for air and after i have hold him and
995765 tn?1249613154 They thought that maybe it was due to a liver shunt so after having her fasted for 12 hours, i brought her back in to get more test done to rule it out. The tests came back normal and now the vet thinks it might be neuorlogical. Chloe is on Phenobarb for seizures( though she doesn't seem to have the ususal characteristics of seizures) just shaking like she is cold. Other than the symptoms i've listed, she acts normal. She eats, drinks, uses the bathroom, and she is playing.
791533 tn?1309748944 And about from that day on he has been out of whack with everything. The good doctor told asked if I had Valium (in its generic form) when I had to say no, he asked about Xanax--. He suggested that I give RikiTiki the tiniest amounts this weekend while kids or even 'big kids--adults' light more fire works to help calm him. He hung up not long after that. See I have an 8 lb Chihuahua/Daushund mix. They are more commonly known as chiweenies. I'm scared for him. I rescued him.
Avatar f tn In 2008, my 12 year old Chihuahua (2.5 lbs) had her Gallbladder removed due to infection and blockage by gall stones. This put stress on her liver and most likely caused some liver damage. Her liver enzymes and white cell blood count were extremely high. But few months after surgery and medication (Actigal & Colchicine), the blood levels were within normal. In November of 2009, my dog lost her appetite, became lethargic and lost weight.
Avatar f tn Very sorry and if you it is likely best you soon look for a new dog many rescue dogs I work with as a volunteer are Chihuahua, in fact I have one in my care now - see pictures of Jasper. He's big, about 12 pounds and only part Chihuahua, I'd guess at least 3/4 Chihuahua.... he is a true "heart fur kid".
Avatar f tn My 6 and a half year old Chihuahua just had a very sudden onset issue with his back and I am at a complete loss. He just finished eating, did not jump, run, have an accident or anything and has been right in front of me the entire time so I know nothing happened... He finished eating and brought me his bowl to put away and laid down next to me... all perfectly normal. My husband went to give him a pet and my dog screamed... before my husband even touched him.
543578 tn?1214415607 I do not know the cause of your dog's seizures but the number one cause of seizure's in young dog's is idiopathic seizure disorder, which means that the cause is unknown. Other causes of seizures are metabolic disease, infectious diseases (including Lyme disease), lesions in the brain and others. It would be best to have your dog examined and treated by a veterinarian.
1160116 tn?1262718836 October after 3 days in preschool Ayden contracted H1N1. November Ayden was bit in the face by a friends adopted chihuahua (punctured his cheek, no medical treatment was sought). December Ayden had a seizure. Thursday December 3rd 2009 my 4yr old son awoke from sleeping by vomiting & urinating on himself shortly after midnight while my husband & I were watching a movie. He was staring & nonresponsive, clamy to the touch as he had been under a blanket, but not running a fever.
Avatar f tn I am the owner of a 1 year old, 8 lb chihuahua. She is extremely interactive, friendly, playful...but a bit skiddish around strangers. She has not been sick one time since we purchased her January 2008. Tonight, however, she jumped down from the sofa...laid on her side shaking...then could not walk when she tried to come to me. Her back legs seemed to be paralyzed.
Avatar m tn Our pets may experience a seizure as a one-time event in their life or seizures can occur as a repeated event over weeks or months. We refer to this repeated event as epilepsy. You may hear the term status epilepticus which is a seizure that is continuous and does not end without intervention. It is a dangerous state and may result in death due to hyperthermia, circulatory collapse, loss of oxygen or an imbalance within the body’s systems.
Avatar n tn He has a dog door out to a bare dirt yard. These episodes always start when he comes in from outside and is a little excited. Petit Mal Seizures? any advice?
Avatar m tn It's yearly vaccination schedule has always been up to date. Off late four months back it had a sort of seizure once in a week when it use to just lie aside without any movement and after few seconds use to get up and get fine absolutely. We took her to a vet who suggested medicine and after that it did not had any seizure untill five days before he passed away he had a similar seizure and I was near him talking to him, after a minute plus he got up and was absolutely fine.

Avatar f tn Hi there- I have a 10 year old chihuahua, in great health.. He has a vet appointment in a few weeks (for a dental cleaning), but I thought I'd ask a question to get opinions in advance (also to help determine if I need to possibly go in sooner). Over the last week, my little guys has started crying in his sleep. I'm not talking about typical doggy whimper or dreamy howling behaviors. It's a constant whine...the entire time he is asleep.
561284 tn?1216229508 I have a little 4 month old puppy chihuahua and at 2 months he was involed in an accident in which he was tripped over (by me) and was fighting for life in the vet. The emergency vet said he wasn't going to make it and my heart broke then, however my little fighter. I phoned the vets every hour until late at night and then early in the morning I thought i was bugging them to. I also, dreaded every phone call as i didn't know what i was going to hear.
