Seizure


Recommended Posts

Hi folks 

My 14 years old cocker had a fit / seizure at about 6.30pm today which lasted about 5 mins.It was very distressing to witness- but thankfully he seems ok now just very tired. He was a little unstable on his legs for about 20 mins after- but no signs of a stroke.

I am keeping him close to me tonight and will get him to the vet in the morning.

I have googled causes- and overheating is a common cause- although we have been keeping him in the kitchen where it’s nice and cool.

Very worrying- and I hope it’s a one off event.

Does anyone have any experience of this ?

Hope its a one off too 🤞

We walk our about 08.00 if there awake LOL and this evening around 18.00, Buster our black lab lets me put a cold wet cloth on his head, he just lies there for ages, if they get too hot i will wet a couple of their towels and drape them over to help cool them down.

My old Border terrier had fits several times per year. They lasted up to 30 minutes.

Whilst they were distressing to me he was none the worse afterwards.

He has fitted again at 9pm - he is calm again now. I am going to sleep in the kitchen with him tonight. I have to be honest- this has never happened before and at 14 1/2 I am fearing the worst.

We had to say goodbye to the wee man this morning- he never recovered and I called the emergency vet out.

Saddest of times losing a pet and a shooting companion.

He like nothing better than sitting in a pigeon hide - giving me disbelieving glances when I missed.

RIP

Rio

Been there too many times and also had those glances of frustration. Sad to hear you lost a friendand know just how you feel. It never gets any easier and they just don't live long enough.

It is never easy to make that final decision and if anything the older you get the harder it become , whatever I do and wherever I go my dog is always near at hand and I know when his time is up I have gave him a good life .

You have done the same with Rio and your dog wouldn't have had any regrets .

Rest in peace Rio

God bless, I have a solid 5 year old black lab, was out for 30mins and 5am this morning, returned had a small breakfast and resumed normal lab behaviour once food had gone ( legs up and fast asleep ) got up listed, eyes started to roll and have a fit. promptly soaked a towel a towel on his tummy feet in a bowl of water and as soon as his tail waged gave him some peanut butter ( palm oil free ( I use it for him at a lunchtime on big days to help him in the afternoons in middle of winter in those icy duck ponds ) he has been fine all day but a nervous one!

The synopsis I have concluded is although I have fit young dogs, set alarm clock early to allow a brief walk before before sun-up kept hydrated the best I could, the house id cool yet it still happened and I was fully aware. . . . .  my good god how many must have dropped this week with people of ain't got a clue
