Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. I'm sorry to hear about your little guy's situation. Has a veterinarian examined him or done any testing since these events have started? When these events aren't happening, is he acting / interacting normally?
How old is this guy? Did they see him acting in this strange way? Or when they evaluated him, was he acting more normal?
Thank you for answering those questions. That can be frustrating when a pet doesn't do the "activity / behavior" that they were doing at home that they are being brought in for evaluation of. The best thing to help get around this is to video what they are doing at home and then bring the video / along with the pet into the clinic. Now a days with all the smart phones and video cameras out there, I have lots of owners bringing in videos of an abnormal behavior, walk, breathing, etc... for me to see it and to also evaluate the pet. It can greatly assist figuring out what is going on. If you can get this video and bring that to your vet, then they can see if they truly still feel that it is a mini stroke / seizure event. If he's having focal seizures with this frequency, then pursuing anti seizure medications may be warranted. At his age, the concern has to be high that if they are seizures, could there be a brain lesion like a tumor as a cause.
