  1. My dog was just sleeping on the floor and then started nodding uncontrollably. Like he's nodding his head "yes". It's so scary. Lasted for about 4-5 mins straight and he had this "what the fuck" look on his face the whole time.

    I checked it out on google and it has lots of info that didn't sound right like history and causes and seriousness wasn';t clear.

    Anybody experience this with their dogs? Is it going to happen again or is a one-time thing? Should I be worried or take him to the doctor?

  2. A friend's dog had seizures and would piss himself during them. He is on some medication now and hasn't had one in a few years.

    Take the dog to the vet.

  6. Put my dog down a little over a year ago because of seizures. She was having them about every 2weeks at the end. Didnt want to put her down cuz she was still in decent shape at 14 but the last seizure she got her head caught between the spindles on my deck and was stuck for an hour or so til the neighbor came over and told me. I was worried she would hurt herself when I wasn't home. She would walk around blind and knock shit over for an hour after the seizures then sleep for hours after that. shit was painful to witness.

  11. Obv take the dog to the vet. Family's dog used to get them until he got put on phenobarbital (same medicine humans take). They will keep happening until you get some type of medication.

  13. take your dog to a neurologist a normal vet is going to do nothing, i have a ton of experience with this, ask your vet about a new medication called zonisamide, the standard medicine that most vets give" Phenobarbital" did nothing for my dog....she still had mutliple seizures a day until i took her to a neurologist and she was prescribed new age medicine (zonisamide) which worked like a charm and she never had another seizure again, that was 4 years ago, but I do have to give her meds 4 times a day. she takes 2 different meds everyday the other is called levatericatam i may have spelled that wrong but close enough a good neurologist will know what meds im taking about. I wish u the best of luck, I pray u dont have to spend thousands like I did to find out they dont know what it is the cause (catscans, MRI's), my dogs seizures started at age 7 and still to this day nobody gave me a real explanation as to why they happened. If u have any questions please feel free to shoot me a PM

  14. Our dog has had seizures for years. The very said they couldn't do anything. We just holds him down to keep him from bashing his head while he flops around and shits everywhere. After about 5 minutes he's back to normal.

    thats fucked up man, if u spent the money on the correct medication your dog could possibly never have a seizure again.

    OP how old is your dog?

  18. Kwik is all good now.

    After it stopped he walked around a little and went to sleep like nothing happened. I've been watching him all day and he seems normal. If it happens again, we're going straight to the vet.

    The apartment across the hall yesterday had their floors refinished and I thought the smell might have caused it (smell wasn't very strong). But I guess it was just a fluke thing. He's only 5 so hopefully it doesn't come back.
