Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question
could you please tell me :
1. Is Teddy passing normal feces ? is he vomiting ?
2. how is his appetite ?
3. how long do these episodes last ? is he showing any strange behavior before or after the even as well (looking scared and such) ?
His feces have beeen a bit loose, no vomiting, he has a good appetite and yes he looks very scared. Last night he was like it for well over an hour , this morning after about 20 mins I had to leave him and get things done and he seemed to come round but I think if I had stayed stroking him it would have taXXXXX XXXXXer.
thank you for your answer Jane .
What you are describing does sound somewhat neurological but does not sound like a seizure by any means .
As there are no other symptoms currently I would not get overly concerned but I would suggest doing the following .
1. have you very perform a basic neurological exam - he/she will check his basic neurological responses in regards XXXXX XXXXX , hearing , coordination and gait .
2. have a blood test performed - just to see that all is ok . At times , there are some diseases which have to do with the hormonal systems which can manifest with neurological signs as well as some metabolic diseases to which simple blood tests can at times give a good indication .
3. Conduct a diary where you will put down the time, duration and appearance of each episode . As well make sure to film them on your phone so you can later present it to your vet for better understanding.
All and all I am not overly concerned at this point . This could be the first signs of a neurological condition but it as well could be a passing neurological phenomena which will goo away as Teddy gets older.
In order to feel calmer - pay that visit to your vet and has for what I have instructed you .
I hope this helps
