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 showed it to my breeder and she thought it looked more like scratching a sweet spot. She seems to be doing alright today so maybe it just took a while for the drugs to get out of her system? I'm not sure..... We will find out tomorrow.

UPDATE:

Journey hasn't had any episodes for over 24 hrs. We went to visit the vet and they gave the all-clear for no e-collar. They advised me to watch for any future episodes and record them in a journal but we are hoping she will be fine now that the Rimadyl is out of her system and she is no longer in the e-collar.

Good luck, hopefully there are no more episodes!

Still no episodes! Which makes me really happy... although if it was in fact a reaction to the Rimadyl it makes me wonder. From what I have researched Rimadyl doesn't necessarily "cause" seizures, but rather lowers the threshold for which they occur... meaning that a dog that has them on the drug would already be prone to them. As long as she doesn't seize anymore I'm a happy camper... I don't think I will give he Rimadyl again though...just to be safe.

That's interesting, but I'm super glad to hear no more episodes. If you ever need to put her on pain meds again, be wary of Tramadol as well, it lowers the threshold too. Also, what flea preventative do you use?

I don't use any flea medication. I do bathe them (not very often, though) with Summerwinds "Take a Hike" Organic, Natural flea & tick repellant shampoo. They are on heartguard and have been for a while and tolerate it well.

Ok cool, a lot of the flea/tick meds are neurotoxic and can induce seizures as well. We just switched from Trefexis to Sentinel for that reason, but we'll need to add in some sort if tick repellant. I think we'll try rose geranium oil this year.
