    Thanks Tootles, it was scarey really full blown shaking and clenched jaw, she is such a lively little thing doesn't look or act like an old dog.

    Has she had a 'busy' day today?? Out in the heat? Or not drinking enough? Sometimes it's things like that tip the scales on an older hound.

    Nothing out of the ordinary except a visit from daughter which she does get excited about, daughter actually said Tammy will outlive the other two, she jinxed her.

    Thanks everyone, up early to take Tammy to vets, she seems herself this morning but wouldn't settle with me upstairs last night so she slept in her usual spot sharing a bed with Heather lab. I slept off and on listening for noise from floor below. Will post how we get on.

    Just back from vets, blood taken and will get results this afternoon, if clear we will wait and see if she takes anymore. If they become frequent may try medication but there was mention of an mri to see if there is a growth in brain but as she is 14 this year I would not consider an op.
    £108 lighter but they're worth it.
    Vet just phoned, bloods ok, glucose a bit elevated but could be vet visit that caused that, so a wait and see game.

    Thanks for the update. Lets hope she recovers well again. Vets sure arent cheap but we do our best for our pets, just like one of the family.

    Very scary for you and Tammy. Glad that she is better today….fingers crossed that it was just a one off.

    I'm reading up about frontline, she had the tick treatment about 2 weeks ago so probably not connected but some folks believe it causes seizures in their pets. She has had the treatment before with no ill effects.
