Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.
There are seizure types called focal seizures where the dog's behavior changes. They may act frightened , distant or become more clingy to the owner.
What breed of dog do you have?
Thank you. I can understand your Vet saying to watch for seizure activity, some dogs will stare at walls/ceilings, some will air lick, and there are a variety of other oddities. If there are focal seizures then other types of seizures may occur in the future,
Just looked at your picture. He really is hiding.
Some dogs will hide if they don't want to be touched due to pain as well and smaller dogs are prone to disc issues which have them hide from the owner.
I am going to direct you to a link on seizures for reading. Hold on please
At this point all you can do is keep an eye on him. Bring him his water and food so he can eat and drink.
as for disc issues that have them hide , you would see an arch in the back when walking, walking gingerly, no longer jumping on furniture.
This can not always be picked up by manipulation or x ray, sometimes a myelogram needs to be done.
I would watch for that. I would keep a journal for this odd behavior , take notice when it happens and what is going on around him when it happens. Sometimes that is helpful.
If they don't happen often nothing is done, but if they become frequent then the dog is put on phenobarbital
You are very welcome. I wish you the best.
