Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
It sounds like you may have witnessed a seizure. Has this happened before with Max?The radio collar, does it emit any type of shock?How has his appetite been since changing the angel eyes dosage?
I would recommend removing the collar entirely until you can have him examined. The collar itself, especially if it is malfunctioning, may well be related to the seizure activity you've witnessed. If you want to be proactive, you or your husband wear the collar around a wrist or ankle for a few days while in his general areas to be sure there isn't a shock being given for no reason at all.If he stresses in the car, consider a mobile vet. Otherwise, schedule an exam and bloodwork to be sure there is no obvious underlying cause such as organ dysfunction, electrolyte imbalance, etc. From this point forward, be on the lookout for seizures. Be ready to film one, if you can. Log them in a book noting the date, time, duration and any odd behavior leading up to or after the seizures. Make sure to log any testing of his boundaries and shock the collar may give off, if you're aware of it to see if this has any link.I doubt that there is a link between the Angel Eyes and the seizures but worth using something different (like Eye Envy which is an external product) if this persists. If this progresses into regular seizure activity, your vet will eventually want to place him on oral medication to decrease the frequency.
