Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Do you have a video of the episodes you're seeing?
2) Will she raise her head once inside or is this consistent?
3) Any changes in the neighborhood? New people? pets?
