Customer Question
My dog is 8...schits...

My dog is 8...schits zu (sp) he has had seizures about 1-2 a month then 2 a week and last 3 days daily. Now he is walking drunk and wants to lay around. I'm guessing a stroke. he has had no ear infections... no meds.

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

Zip

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

Loves to drink water. Has been like that for several years. Gets more excited about water than his food. Crazy little guy

Do you think he has had a stroke? and can I expect a recovery.
Dog Veterinarian: Denver ER Doc, Dog Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

There is no way to tell whether or not he has had a stroke without examining him. With a history of seizures, it seems more likely that he is exhibiting post-seizure behavior.

Ok so the post-seizure behavior should improve??
Dog Veterinarian: Denver ER Doc, Dog Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

If it is post-ictal behavior, then yes. Can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

Post seizure behavior.... It has been 2 days and no improvement. Still walking drunk. When should improvement take place
Dog Veterinarian: Denver ER Doc, Dog Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

As above, typically within a few days. If no improvement, have your vet recheck him to see if the neurologic status has changed, as that may indicate the underlying problem. At that point, spinal stroke is fairly likely.
