Hi there,

Thank you for your question regarding your Chihuahua boy Benny. Before I put an answer together for you, I am going to need a little more info:

- Could you please describe the episode in more detail? Was he shaking or moving his limbs? Did he urinate or defecate? Were his eyes twitching? Or was he just very still during this time?
- Have you noticed other symptoms over the last few days? Any coughing or breathing issues?
- How long did he take to come around? What was he doing directly prior to the event?

Once you get back to me, I will start typing up my response. Thanks for this and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
