Seizure in maltese

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure in maltese


Avatar n tn On April 11th early morning around 1 am, I was awoken to my 1 yr 10 months old maltese, 4 lbs, having a grand mal. It was the first time I saw her having a grand mal. At that time, I had no idea what it was and was in panic! She was unconscious, violently jerking full body, salivating and then went very ridgid. I have no idea how long the seizure lasted. When she came out of the state, I took her to an emergency.
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 m tn If you want to, you can ask (but doc may refuse) if you may also take home a single dose of diazepam, to give your dog at home in case he has a break-through seizure that will not stop in a few minutes. If so, it will come in a syringe, and must be kept cold until use.Have the vet educate you on how and when to use it. I hope I have helped here.
2186126 tn?1384961026 I went from feeding her once in the morning and once in the evening to 3 smaller meals throughout the day. Another thing is the thirst, it's insatiable. She would drink constantly. They shed, she would get lil white mole looking things everywhere. Then she started getting really weak. She would go out to potty, but I'd have to help her down the steps (I'm not going to let her stumble and risk falling) and I'd help her back up.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
423142 tn?1203656394 I have a 1yr 3mth old maltese terrier. She had a seizure last year in Nov. We had many many tests done and the vet has told me that it may be a condition called "White Shaker". She has been or cortisone tablets since the seizure and we are trying to get her off of it slowly. She is now down to 1 tablet one day and 1/2 tablet the next. She has never come in to season but my vet has told me that the tablets can cause the dealy.
Avatar n tn my dog keeps gagging as if shes choking on something, shes a two year old maltese, it came on all of a sudden, im concerned, what can i do to help?
Avatar n tn don't harp on that in your mind. Most of us hope for dignity the end of our winter, in my opinion our companions do too. Don't allow that memory to over take you repeatedly, your companion deserves his or her dignity. Remember that. Of you do both of your spirits will learn to flourish.
Avatar n tn i want to know if there are other solutions that are effective. also if there is something good to do during a seizure. i give her a spoonful of natural van ice cream after each one. is that okay or good?
Avatar n tn She's now back to normal and while speaking with the vet, he agreed and felt it was not a seizure or IVD. Her symptoms included, yelping and crying in pain, curling her head back toward her back above her tail, since that seemed to be where the pain was, walking around for hours, because every time she tried to lay down, it was more painful, stretching with butt in air to try to relieve pain.
1761287 tn?1313828387 Steroids are one of the important medications to treat asthma in cats and are necessary and can be life saving in serious cases. All medications, even those considered natural have side effects. The benefits do outweigh the risks in most cases if used appropriately. I really do recommend that you have a chest X-Ray if asthma is suspected. I also recommend that you follow your vets advise.
Avatar n tn By November - Thanksgiving seizures were lasted for 1/2 hour coming in clusters. Phenobarbital was perscribed and slowly increased. Testing in hospital did not reveal anything. Three doctors including neurologist examined him and oversaw medication. By December seizures were happening every month lasting 1 hour. Further blood work, MRI and Cat scan did not reveal any abnormalities. Next few months seizures were happening every three weeks until death. We are devasted ....
Avatar n tn There are also lamb/rice bones for treats. Treats are in the morning, meals in the evening.
Avatar m tn We've kept a close eye on her and tried researching seizures in dogs. We're not 100% sure if this was a seizure because we read after a seizure, dogs act tired and confused, even as if they were sedated, while Suzu ran around franticly, running between the couch and the wall (very tight spaces) and out the other side of the couch, viciously and i mean VICIOUSLY digging at the floor, couch, blankets and other things. This is all VERY unusual for her.
1417258 tn?1282131355 My 5 year old maltese x shitzu sometimes walks around funny. She seems like she is sleep walking, she does not know what or where she is going she does, however, respond but seems very confused. She did this a couple of times when she was younger. Thank fully it rarely happens and every time it happens it always ends with her going to the toilet. By this we also think she is busting but it is strange how she seems so confused.
6246858 tn?1382272876 I left the Maltese in the car and just took Sugar and Spike in. The priest began blessing Sugar, while not noticing Spike in my arms. Sugar was bouncing around saying hi to everyone. While Spike lay quiet in my arms. I said, "no Father, she's not the sick one, he is!" He replied, as he got a kick out of her sweetness, "that's o.k. I will bless her also." We spent the day out all together, I picked up some lunch for them and I was hoping that we missed the mailman!
Avatar m tn But because he's back to his usual self already, and did not have and bleeding from his ears, and his pupils look fine, and he did not have a seizure, and his head isnt swollen or anything, the vet says i need not bring him in. She says he was probably traumatized by the incident thus appeared very shocked and disorientated at that time!
603946 tn?1333945439 Never had a bloody scuffle at all. We have 15 year old Maltese female Sugar has little cysts all over and now had a big cancer removed from her head. Los has seizures. The week before we had scheduled to have the cancer removed, Dulce had her haunches up sniffing Sugar, and attacked her. I was with Sugar and we were walking inside after going out to potty. Sugar had a seizure while she was being attacked. Dulce and Jackson had been for a nice long walk right before this.
1110049 tn?1409405744 Reported nervous system symptoms included lethargy, nervousness, ataxia (movement problems), tremors and seizure. A number of adverse reactions in cats were the result of the cat either being treated with a product intended for dogs, or through exposure to a treated dog. Cats treated with products intended for dogs had an especially rate of serious reactions and fatalities. Inert ingredients in spot-on products were generally assumed to contribute to toxicity.
251222 tn?1270939717 but because I am on anti-seizure meds for pain they don't believe I could have a seizure...maybe my drugs are being played around with too much and it's causing this activity in my brain...who knows??? The dog seems to know something is going on and I think I will listen to her!!
Avatar n tn Our pets are our babies and to lose one is so painful and leaves such an empty place in our hearts. My baby is in fourth stage renal failure, so please in time find peace that he left so quickly. I know this is just words right now, but you will find comfort in this as time passes.
Avatar n tn It's 8 months later and my little Teddy Maltese is still hanging in. No Cushings disease medicine - tried lower dosage (2nd time around) he got worse. He has Thryroid Disease as well and the Soloxine has helped him a lot. Also, bad Skin conditions and hair loss from with Cushings. I tried natural NYZYMES for 3 months- did not help. -works great for some people. I use DMSO (stinks) on his skin (vet dermatologist rec.) for the bumps-fancy name per vet, I don't recall.
1342335 tn?1276725927 One thing that really stuck with me is that to be able to treat your pet you need to be in physical, emotional and spiritual condition to be able to do what might be needed 24 hours a day. What if I can't say for sure that I can be all of that in the condition I am in? The costs of treatment, especially all of the tests are worrisome but i am very low income social security and I believe I can find help out there. Excuse me for rambling, guess this is the first time I have shared my fears.
Avatar m tn He has been in perfect health but just out of the blue had a grand mal seizure. I took him to the veterinary hospital as it was in the evening and he had two more there. Within 24 hours they got me in to see a neurologist and now he's being treated for a bad case of Valley Fever. He drinks a ton and eats more, but my biggest concern is his lethargy and lack of coordination. It takes him so much effort to get up, particularly the hind legs; it's so sad to watch.
Avatar f tn was up to 108* she had been in the seizure for about 2 hours. We had to travel to the hospital 40 miles away. We talked to the vet and decided that we would put Coco down. My wife and I had talked about this situation many times sense Coco was ill. It was very hard for me Coco was a Christmas present to me 10 years ago to the day. I'm feeling really guilty this morning missing her and her ****-eyed looks back at me when we talked. I knew she understood everything I would say to her.
Avatar f tn Sending you healing prayers. My 15 year old Maltese was diagnosed with severe kidney failure in early April. So far he is eating the KD can food and drinking fluids. His kidney levels are back to normal. However, this Saturday he goes in for a blood test. Not sure what to expect. I do wish you the best and know that you have a lot of support on this forum.
Avatar n tn Initially, we were told to wait it out, then he was put on a steroid regimen, and was on steroids with a holistic support approach and, in the end, immodium. We finally put him out of his misery on June 5. With all the professional help, I felt helpless as I watch my first born die. No one seemed to acknowledge he was so sick. I'm struggling for answers as to what happened and how it happened. I do believe it was the shots that killed him. Has anyone heard similar stories?
203342 tn?1328740807 Our 9 year old beagle was diagnosed with Cushings in late Jan after having a horrible seizure. He was so sick and we were ready to let him go, when our vet gave him Lysodryn. The result was incredible. He still staggers around like a little drunk dog, and we had to get a harness for him to help stand him up when he has to go outside, but he has been doing very well. He takes the Lysodryn (not sure of the spelling) 2x a week and the tablets cost about $7.50 a piece.
Avatar f tn On the morning of his passing he was with me in my room most of the morning. He slept most of the time (which was normal for him) and I gave him crust from a sandwich I was eating. Before that my mother had put him outside before she went to work and he came in after a short time and ate some dog food then proceeded to my room. Around 1pm my father put him out and he urinated and came back in. My father saw him the whole time and he didn't do anything but his "business.
