Here are some videos of this type of seizure:
It really helps to be able to see the whole patient during an episode, but also to see his face and jaws and eyes during the episode.
Start a log. Note in it the date, time and duration of any seizure-like event. Note the position ofCustomer(on his right side, on his left, on his belly, etc), and whether or not he urinates or defecates during it. Note how many hours since he ate, and also whether there has been anything different or stressful in the week prior to it (visitors, a move, renovations, etc).
I can understand your financial concerns! In terms of what to do to protect Biscuit and keep him as healthy and safe as possible, I would suggest 2 things in regards XXXXX XXXXX dental and anesthesia:
1. Have blood work done before hand.
This will let us know how well his liver and kidneys are working, and that his red and white blood cell numbers are where they should be.
2. Make sure that he has an IV catheter and IV fluids during his anesthetic.
This ensures that he won't suffer from low blood pressure, and *if* anything did go wrong, that his veterinarian would be able to inject emergency drugs instantly, without having to search for a vein.
I hope that helps you! I know how much you loveCustomerand want to do everything to protect him and keep him healthy.
