Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
vet has not done anything other than physical manipulation. He does this every morning when he gets up to go outside, almost everytime he jumps up onto the back of the couch. I have a ramp leading up to the couch, he does not go up stairs and I try to limit his running
Thank You for your input, I have presently 5 doxies, so I know about IVDD. I had one that required surgery @ U of I 5 years ago , so unfortunately I have been there done that. I have never experienced one with symptoms like this. Again, Thank You. Jo
nochange on this end, I did forget to mention I have noticed this movement also when he was just sitting next to his water bowl and I had dropped some ice cubes in . The sound seemed to trigger this " electric shock" movement. I wondered if this could be a focal seizure? And if they are how can the vet Rx this without witnessing. I don't want to wait until it becomes a full blown seizure and am unable to run to my vet. I have 30yrs experience with people medicine, just not my fur kids meds, Thank You (light does not trigger it)
Thank You again so very much! Have a great week!
We went again to our vet, I thought I had a way to get him to react. Typical kid, we tried, but he did not act like anything was wrong. We are going to try Phenobarb for a few days to see if indeed it helps. I am to call on the 5th day to let them know outcome. It does make life interesting and scary. Once again, Thank You for the best service.
