Welcome to Justanswer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian, and would like to assist you. I will respond quickly after reviewing your question.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about your guys condition. It is hard to know what may be causing this since the symptoms are vague for any specific condition. It may be that your guy is starting to suffer a pancreatitis causing the digestive disturbance which has been followed by a petite mal seizure secondary to this disturbance. I would advise you to take your guy to your vet or the ER vet because this could be very serious for your guy including a possible stroke or life threatening pancreatitis. For now, fast your guy and give him Pepcid AC at 0.5 mg per pound of his weight every 8 hrs to help resolve this digestive issue. This is available at the phramacy over teh counter. If the symptoms worsen, take him to the ER vet....I am very worried about your guy!Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
Yes, this could be a mild petite mal seizure. It could be Epilepsy or something connected to the other condition. I believe that this is more complicated tan a mild digestive disturbance so when it is possible, have blood work and testing done on your sweet guy! I am a mini schnauzer lover and know they have issues as they age that may require veterinary attention.
I know things can be hard...I am so sorry. For now, however, try to get the digestive disturbance under control so your guy is comfortable. You can do testing to determine why he is having these episodes later when you have the money to do so. I do not believe that your sweet guy is in a life threatening situation so just do the best that you can. It also may be that your guy has severe arthritis that is causing him distress and that can be hard on him. Just do the best that you can....I can tell you love him very much and you are doing great so far.
