Customer Question
My Chihuahua fell of...

My Chihuahua fell of the porch tonight while wAlking down the stairs. His nose was bleeding we live in an upstairs apartment. We brought him in and help pressure til the bleeding stopped he was wAlking fine we laid in the bed and he started seizing and fell off the bed after the seizure he acted like he didn't know us. He's wAlking now but he can't close his mouth his tounge is hanging and he's drooling and keeps having mini seizures

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Leo he is nine

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Leo?

No Not that I can think of

Then I got him up and put him on his bed. He seems fine now. Could he have had a seizure? … read more
