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.

Hi,
Does anyone else own a husky with epilepsy. My dogs has had epilepsy a few years now. He's on medication for it. His fits are down to one in a month lately. He had a fit a couple of days ago but he's not been the same since this fit. He's very quiet, off his food just wants to be alone and sleep. It's not normal. After a fit he normally is back to his normal self within 24 hours. They say they can take 48 hours sometimes to fully recover but he should be by now and seems very scared. Any advice from husky owners of epileptic dogs please. I am phoning vet tomorrow.

Epilepsy drugs have all sorts of side effects. Are you 100% sure it was an Epilepsy fit and not a stroke. My vet thinks splinter has mild Epilepsy, and i have never seen a seizure but he exhibits the after effects. To me it seems more like a stroke, but never anything permanent. Towrds the end of his problem he gets really clingy. I would call tonight if your vet has emergency services.

I have alot of seizure experience, so does spider. Its way scary to watch. I would try a 1:1 cbd:thc (thc-a is better but harder to find) from what ive heard and from testing on jerry, cbd alone doesnt do that much, same thing with thc..

It's epilepsy not a stroke. He's been epileptic since young. He's on meds do has less now. Previously he had cluster fits. Normally he recovers this time he's really subdued. His epilepsy is monitored by my vet and he has regular blood tests. It was not a stroke it was a fit.

He's still very quiet. The vets are not worried about him as one fit in a month is not bad. He just seems vacant. He's not eating much either. Has anyone else on this forum got a husky with epilepsy?. I'm not sure if he's just scared himself this time. It is awful to watch and even worse for him.

Yes hes been checked it was a fit. He's took longer to recover this time that's all. Hence why I wondered if any other husky owners had dogs with epilepsy.

I have an epileptic terrier but its not fits, its transient seizures. Had a long talk with my vet about it yesterday. Its not happening often enough to where i am thinking neurology and medication yet. And thinking back about 3 months ago, when splinter was not back to normal by the 2nd day i did take him in but by the time i got him there he was back to normal.

Hey Lycan,

Search on "seizure" and you'll find several of us here with epilepsy. Lachlan is my boy and we've been through a lot. Good luck.
