God called and I think that he wants his dog back and I really can't blame him.
Tia is my sweet and loyal girl who has been my heart dog for 11 years.
She has the best smile, the brightest eyes, can beg, and even talk. She also has a lovely long coat with a happy swishy tail. Tia
3 months ago we found her slipping or tripping on tiles. After a few weeks we noticed that she started to jolt for 3 seconds when eating or drinking or while she was snoozing.
She would also lose balance and tip over if there was a loud noise like a fork hitting a plate. Although she started to manage this better and we laid non slip matting over most of our floor boards she still experienced about 10 3 second jolts a day. This never happened when she was out on walks or visiting others so other people think that I am nuts. :P
The vets told me that she was a mystery but she is an old dog and these things happen.
While I was prepared for her slipping and falling I was not prepared for her first full on uncontrolled seizure.
Tia was her happy usual self and walked off after a smiley pat. She slipped on our floor boards, fell on her side, had a seizure with her mouth completely wide open with froth and blood. This lasted for 2or 3 minutes before she scrambled up and ran away to a corner and became very aggressive (she has never shown signs of aggression)
We managed to take her straight to the vet where she paced and was uncomfortable. She would not allow the vet to examine her at all. She did not settle for a good 3 hours later nor did she seem to recognise any of us including our other dog. It was strange to see her sleep so deeply afterwards. This morning she is still sniffing me as if she doesn't know me which is heart breaking.
Do you have any idea what kind of seizure this might have been? vetibular? cerebellar intention tremor??
As you can imagine we are very distressed and have no idea of what to expect and are looking forward to any insights that you could offer us.
I have no idea when or where the next one will occur but I do know that it will happen.
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to contribute and maintain this forum. I feel as though I have entered a dark fog not knowing what is going to pop out at my lovely girl next. I look forward to learning a lot from you
