Avatar m tn Grand mal seizure is the most common kind of seizure in dogs. This could cause your dog to lose consciousness and convulse. Here are the most common of seizure in dogs: Eating poison Liver disease Low or high blood sugar Kidney disease Electrolyte problems Anemia Head injury Encephalitis Strokes Brain cancer These are what you should do when your dog is having seizure. * Try to stay calm. Distance your dog from anything that could hurt him, do it gently.
Avatar f tn The past 2 nights around the same time, like 1 am or so he has had what I believe is a seizure... He gets stiff and shakes furiously and has a look of Panic in his eyes. He also looses control of all boul movements and slobes profusily. Like I said this has only happened the past 2 nights and Ive had him over a couple years now and never seen him do anything like this.
Avatar m tn Charlie (13 years old - medium sized - bad hips) just had some sort of seizure. His front paw was going in the air and he was swaying - very lethargic. He was shaking. It looked like he didn't know who I was until I grabbed him and pulled him into me. He seemed to have settled down and his front leg finally went down. He seems to be fine now. I had him to the Vet recently about his hips and they took blood - all checked out okay. It almost seemed he had some sort of stroke.
Avatar m tn My question is in regards to bowel movements the day or two following a seizure. Both times now she has NOT gone potty for 36-48 hours afterward.. She's eating and drinking as normal... full of energy etc. Then, on the third day she goes potty much more than normal... AND she has urinating and pooped in the house (which she has NEVER done). I'm sure I'm looking too far into these type of symptoms...
1916673 tn?1420236870 Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys. In kidney disease the kidneys are damaged and cannot excrete excess phosphorus, which then acts like a toxic substance in the blood. Reducing phosphorus intake is therefore important (check all the foods you may be feeding, including treats, for phosphorus content). The additional way of controlling it is to introduce a phosphate binder.
2186126 tn?1384961026 I now think by shrinking the tumor with this medicine, then managing the subsequent side effects of treatment is the superior approach for dogs under 14. Make sure to google/ research the heck out of Cushing as it is very complex, and you'll want to make sure your vet can refer you to a specialist as symptoms become more serious. Get second and third opinions, etc. Drs don't truly understand this illness very well at all, and tend to have varying opinions on treatments, etc.
1963554 tn?1325451090 It is completely heart wrenching when their time comes to leave us, just as with human friends and family that we lose over time. In the end, all we can do is offer our dogs all the reassurance, love and attention they deserve and be as kind and humane as we possibly can. They need us to be strong and do the right thing ... regardless of how much it hurts us, it's one of the many responsibilities of being a good owner. My heart goes out to you. Give Shaggy an extra hug from me.
369472 tn?1198749292 Dark meat poultry, fatty hamburger, ground lamb, and canadian bacon are good choices. Of course, dogs in renal failure are so nauseated, it's hard to get them to eat anything, so if she won't eat the low-phosphorus foods, just get something in her. To counteract phosphorus, give her one or two Tums antacid tablets a day - or any indigestion tablet that is primarily calcium. The calcium binds with phosphorus and carries out of the body so it can't do further harm to the kidneys.
Avatar n tn Sometimes they are used alone, other times, in more severe cases they are used in combination with other meds. Wait and see what your vet says after this course of treatment is done and then decide from there.
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 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 Until this month in April 2016 I notice he was getting worse. It's crazy how one day dogs are fine but can go down hill so fast. Restless in the middle of the night, couldn't stand still kept walking around, coughing so bad he was gagging, staining and if he poop sometimes he would had a mini sezuire or passed out, and his regualr sezuires were getting worse. We increased his meds but after a while he didn't want them.
Avatar n tn The only experience I have with seizures in dogs is with the 120-lb Lab next door. He developed bad seizures at about age 2, and has been taking phenobarb for the last 2 years in gradually increasing doses. The seizures are far less severe, but he still has one like clockwork about every 6 to 8 weeks, and he has no underlying disease that causes them as your dog does. The phenobarb may have slowed him down a bit, but not much. Good for you for pursing the Lyme testing for your dog.
Avatar f tn If you all go in there, and your other dog witnesses her death, on the vet's table, it is just possible it might make HIM afraid in future of going to the vet. Dogs are no way stupid. They know going in there they smell sickness, and nervousness, which is bad enough. They can't put two-and-two together quite the way we can. They can't think "our loved one was sick, so we went to the vet for her suffering to be ended" All he will observe is her death while at the vet's.
Avatar m tn In any case anti-seizure medication plays no role in syncope treatment. In that case she may need medication to normalize that rhythm or even a pacemaker. Your doctor may want to order an echocardiogram too, which is the best overall test for heart disease analysis. Please do keep us informed of how your dogs situation is doing.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.

Avatar m tn A lady was using this supplement for her dog just to give her dog the necessary enzymes/nutrients not present in cooked kibble, (that are found in raw food). She discovered, as a side bonus that her dogs incontinence ceased after starting her dog on the Fresh Factors. It works. You can double or triple the dose if you wish, to boost it in the beginning, as well, with absolute safety/no harm or ill effects, whatsoever. Anyways, I tried it, and it works.
561284 tn?1216229508 we took him to my vet and she checked him over and said he might have neurological problems and if it keeps hapeneing and we cant afford the treatment which could run into thousands and if he gets anymore distressed perhaps the best option is to put him to sleep... i didint want to do this as it only happened once!! The next day he was fine, and the next.. then he had the same episode... same screaming, running from us, heartbreaking.
Avatar n tn I was bitten 20 yrs ago and the head of the tick (in Indianapolis) stayed in my scalp for a week, then I developed lumps all over my head that disappeared a bit after a doctor removed the tick. I grew up in WV, w/ plenty of deer and dogs/cats. I don't know what to make of it. Thanks in advance for any input.
Avatar f tn The important thing is that while UTI's are inclined to recur with susceptible dogs, a pretty aggressive antibiotic treatment, followed by a probiotic such as live yogurt to restore the gut flora -should make some difference. And it's important generally to make sure she takes on plenty of fluids, and pees plenty too.
Avatar f tn Thanks my friends. Debbie, I will do what you say, thank you so much for the advice. I appreciate each and every one of you, thank you... She just called me again. She's really upset naturally, she says she isn't detoxing, when she got arrested a couple weeks she detoxed herself. I told her that's one blessing, she's not doing that in jail. She said she knows she has no right to ask, but she did ask for a lawyer. I had to tell her its way too expensive for us.
