my border collie aged 8 is fit and healthy , in the last 18 months he has had 3 "funny turns" where he did not know what was happeningand did not seem to recognize us he also seemed very frightened. these episodes always happen at night and when we have been on holiday after long strenous hill walks he always has lots of water to drink. My vet has proscribed pixion and i am not happy with this as i do not think his symtoms are epileptic fits and i do not want him on medication for the rest of his life unless it is absolutly necesary . What do you think. ps these turns subside over a period of 10 or 12 hours. he sleeps on his bed near me and i would
have woken if he had any kind of convulsions , he did not..
when I say his symptoms last 10 to 12 hours he functions normally
but still seems anxious for some time. I do not want to go down the medication road but is there something other, simpler than pexion that he could take on a less regular basis , also could it be brought on by excessive tired ness?
