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 everyone, I'm new the forum with a 2 year old Husky named Zeus. The other night he went outside for a little bit and when he was ready to come back in he made a noise by the door. When I went to let him though he was just laying very still on the ground. I go over to check on him and his eyes are open and he seems aware of me, but he's just kind of laying there frozen. He isn't breathing heavy and his mouth is closed and his eyes are just kind of wide open. This seemed to last a minute or so and then its like he starts to snap out of it. He will start licking his mouth and then start panting a little more normal and then eventually be able to stand back up. He seems a little awkward when he first gets back up to his feet, but he doesn't really seem disoriented or do anything else out of the ordinary.

This is now the 2nd time that this type of incident happened in about a 6 month period that we know of. My dad had saw him act like this once before, but just stayed with him petting and reassuring him until he snaps out of it. He described it with the same symptoms. We also had a German Shepard once that had epileptic seizures which were much more obvious with shaking and twitching so that why I'm not sure if that's what this is.

Has anyone experienced this with their Husky before and can possible provide some insight into how serious this may be? I plan to take him to the vet soon, but I know how expensive running tests can sometimes be if the symptoms aren't clear enough for the vet. Is it possible Zeus is just teaching himself how to convincingly play dead (wishful thinking)? Thanks in advance for taking time to read my post.

Unfortunately huskies are one of the breeds that are prone to seizures. We had a husky before the one we currently own and it started off slow like that and then eventually progressed. We had to put her down at age 1 1/2 years because she had four seizures in 24 hours. Please don't wait until the symptoms worsen, there is medication that can help with this problem! Go see your vet!
