Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
HI this is DRB and I am happy to help you with this. Seizure like symptoms would have nothing to do with the heart. This breed can have epilepsy and you need to take your dog to your vet to be evaluated for potential causes of seizures. Your vet will do a full exam and should run a CBC, chemistry and thyroid profile and urinalysis. Your vet will also ask you specific questions about the seizure like activity and will listen to your dogs heart carefully. You should not increase the dose of the cardiac medication enalapril as this is a very potent drug and can cause kidney issues and severe hypo-tension if not dosed correctly. Your pet needs to see your vet to get this one worked out. I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB
