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.
Do you happen to have any video of the episodes?How often do they occur and how many of the episodes have happened?
Do you happen to have any video of the episodes?
If you can record a video in the days to come, this would be quite useful. I am concerned that you may be witnessing a focal seizure which does not characteristically look like grand mal seizures at all. We can see staring off into space, staggering, repeated motions such as biting or licking, etc. In such a case, bloodwork would be indicated to determine if there was an underlying cause for the episodes. I would begin recording the date, time, duration and description of each of these from this point forward. If your vet agrees that this might be seizure activity, even focal seizures, anti-convulsant therapy may be needed in the future and having a determination on how often the espies are occurring will be very important.
There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. If it fails to load, the files are likely too large. You can also use websites like Imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If this does not work and you’d prefer to text them directly to my cell phone, let me know. There is an additional charge for this, but it can make the job of sending pictures or video much more simple. Just let me know what works for you. I’ll be standing by.
It should be near the button you click to respond. It may be due to your phone, yes, that you're unable to see it. Using a computer may be needed.
JACustomer, if you're still working on loading the video please let me know. I will be stepping away from the computer shortly otherwise.
