Got such a fright tonight, our 13 yr old border terrier had huge fit tonight, first one, will take her to vets tomorrow but seems fine now, will sleep in spare room with her tonight in case she has another.
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.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.
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.
b b, We've stopped using frontline completely because of the sometimes awful side effects......We now use 'Bravecto' , not cheap, but a single tab (looks like an old ROLO....and yes I would give you my last one) lasts 3 months. There aren't currently any 'reported' side effects and it does for tics and fleas just like frontline. No adverse of any sort on any of 'our' dogs. Worth a go?
Thanks Allan and Loren, hope that is the case but poor Heather tore her cruciate ligament a few weeks ago, she is nearly 13 but they do love each other, Tammy licks her and when she stops Heather nudges her. I've psyched myself to losing them both soon.Try not to worry. My friends dog had a seizure completely out of the blue. The dog was 11 at the time. Vet found nothing out of the ordinary, similar to Tammy, so life went on. She lived until she was 16 and a half and never had another seizure. I hope Tammy's is a one off and she has many more years of fun with Heather.
