I have an eleven year old yorkiepoo around 15 lbs. She is larger and a little plump. She started having these spells, where her legs start shaking, her head twitches, she seems a little unaware, and looks like she might fall over. She is also drinking alot of water. These started about a month ago, and seem to be increasing in the hot weather. She also seems to do alot of panting.
I have a near 5 year old maltese - 5 lbs. He started having
I have a near 5 year old maltese - 5 lbs. He started having seizures 2 weeks ago - tonic clonic and difficult to get under control. Has needed anesthesia to stop seizures. He is now on Phenobarbitol and Zonisamide. On Sat eve he got into the garbage (the phenobarb has made him a food fanatic). I cannot tell you what he ate or did not eat. Monday went to vet as he was lethargic and "wobbly" when walking. No vomiting or diarrhea. Was eating / drinking some but not normally. Stomach was abnormally enlarged. Feces was normal appearing. Monday dx was an ulcer. He was anemic based on prior labs from initial seizures - near 2 weeks prior. X-ray with nothing prominent. No signs of pancreatitis - liver and kidney functions good. Started him on carafate, pepcid and an anitnausea med that is now gone. Today I thought he was getting better as he was up walking around minimally on his own. This evening he will not walk, won't eat or drink, is lethargic, yips when picked up or moves. Eyes are glossy. Stomach is distended but not as it was on Monday. No panting. Urine appears fine, no stool today

Kakadu, Black Lab. Last weighed in December 2015 (62View more dog veterinary questions
Kakadu, Black Lab. Last weighed in December 2015 (62 pounds). Recently been having seizures. He weighed 54 pounds (from last December). Vet took a ton of blood testing. ALL was normal. He is TOTALLY active, HUGE appetite, playful, etc. Just curious. If the weight loss was across these 7 months, then due to the South Texas heat and his age, I can understand the weight loss. The vet wasn't concerned. BUT (question) IF the weight loss was recent due to something ""serious"", then (1) would he show other symptoms like lethargic, loss of appetite, sick, etc.? And, (2) would something show up in the blood tests? The tech said they checked everything (liver enzymes, etc., everything). I was just a mixture of curious/concerned. As said, he eats like a hog, playful, active etc. Anything to lose sleep over???
