Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I had a cat that developed epilepsy. She was on medication for a long time with no problems, after awhile I tried a short time without medication and even without there were no more epilepsy problems for the rest of her life.

Hope they can get to the bottom of what's happening. One simple neuro test you can do is this. Support her weight with your arm just in front of the rear legs but keep her paws on the ground. Then pick up one leg and turn her paw where the top of the foot is touching the ground then let go. If she replaces it on her own that's a good thing. Do other leg the same. This rules out a lot of spinal / disc issues. You can do the same just behind the front legs but things in this area little different neuro wise than the rear.

You know, I really wouldn't doubt hypoglycemia. As a diabetic, when my sugar drops, the symptoms remind me if when I see people drunk/high. My eyes are glazy, I shake a lot, I feel so weak I just usually lay somewhere looking like I'm on the verge of death, if it's low enough I'm pretty incoherent and sort of feel like I'm having an out-of-body experience.
The throwing up, I couldn't tell you why that happened, but could be part of the reason why his levels dropped.

Thanks for the support guys! As always you're awesome!

Brian, Kristina actually told me to do that when it first occurred (night before last) and she did flip her paws back into place Very Happy I only did the front though...not the back. I HOPE it doesn't happen again tonight, but if it does I'll try the back.

Heather, girl, I HOPE it's hypoglycemia. Not that it's good by any means, but I prefer that over epilepsy!

Right now she's chewing away at her marrow bone. Switching rooms every few minutes Razz

Yup. I agree. Epilepsy was my first thought.

I have diabetes and epilepsy, not sure which one I'd prefer, haha. I dislike my diabetes more since it's life threatening but having diabetes and having hypoglycemia are two different things. I hope it's really nothing and just some odd off moments! I wish they could get lab results for everything within a few minutes.

If its Hypoglycemia, will you have to giver her shots everyday? The meds for seizures are pretty inexpensive and easy to give if it is Epilepsy. I'm hoping for the best possible outcome for Asia!

You don't give shots for hypoglycemia. Only actual diabetics are given shots to correct their blood sugar and it's for when they get hyperglycemia. She'd just need to be given Glucose paste, syrup, honey, PB to help her levels rise back up.
