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.

Tasha gave us a scare, seizure like event Empty

This evening Tasha gave us a real scare. She had been fine all day, but when I came home from picking up one of the girls, she was acting weird and laying on the ground (she was in her kennel). When I went to check on her, she was shaking all over and her head was swaying side to side. Not violent shaking, but she was visibly shaky and her limbs were jerking. She was responsive the whole time, and when she saw me coming to her she tried to get up and come to me, but she was staggering all over and couldn't stay up. I got to her and helped her up and after about 3-4 minutes, the fit passed. She was very quickly back to her normal self, but I have her in the house keeping an eye on her. I called our vet's emergency line and he called me back. He said to just keep an eye on her and if it occurred again to bring her in tomorrow, that she could have a thyroid problem or might be having seizures. To my knowledge, this is the first time she's ever had a fit like this (We've only had her since December). I've emailed her previous owner to clarify that. She is 8 years old and is in great health. The only issue she's ever had that I know of is that after having 1 litter of pups, she was spayed and they found a mammary tumor and had to remove all of her mammary glands.

Have any of you had similar issues? Is there a chance that this is just some freak thing that happened that won't happen again? We're very worried about her.

I've been watching her closely today and for the biggest part of the morning, she was very lethargic and sleepy. She hasn't had any further episodes, so I'm thinking maybe the event just drained her energy. If she's not feeling better tomorrow or if she has another event, I'm going to go ahead and take her in just to be on the safe side. Here's a pic I took of her last night:

This is pretty much all she's done since. She gets up every little bit and wants to be petted, but then she goes right back to laying down.

Prayers and continued good thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I'll be thinking about Tasha. Is she eating/drinking? Definitely take her in if you think she's not feeling better. It's so hard sometimes because they can't tell us what's wrong.

I would definitely take her in. It's could be an odd reaction to something, but I would rather be safe than sorry.

She is eating and drinking and pretty much back to her normal self this evening. She still seems a little tired, but she was running around in the yard and playing with me earlier.

Definitely make an appointment to take her in tomorrow and let a vet check her out. I think you should do a few panels of bloodwork to make sure that nothing is off, but they'll probably recommend that anyway.

Hope she feels better soon! That sounds so scary :/
