• Hope it all works out okay - keep us posted.

  • If it happens again and you have a way to video tape it, do so. You can show the video to your vet to help with diagnosis and treatment.

  • How is Polly?

  • Well, the vet took blood from Polly (and she was as good as gold, never even flinched - bless!), and the good news is that the test results are fine, also the urine sample that my husband chased her around the garden for was fine too!! However, the vet has said that it was probably some kind of fit/seizure and that she could have an MRI scan, however, as she has only had one of these 'episodes', I am loathe to go down that route unless they occur regularly. So, fingers crossed it won't happen again. Polly is fine, her usual self. Thanks to everyone for your support. Will try to post some pix in the near future! BJ x 🙂

  • Hi,
    hope you have managed to get Polly sorted out. Our Basenji started having fits which were caused by a liver problem. His condition was managed by drugs. When he had a fit he actualy barked first before dropping to the floor. He survived to the ripe old age of 14 1/2.

  • Good luck, Polly (and family). Prayers of good thoughts sent your way from my Ty and Kate.

  • I am sorry this has happened to you and Polly, Basenji seizures are so not fun and pretty scarry. Our elder basenji got them from old age/renal failure. He got where he could feel them coming on and would try to almost run away from them. We got to read his body language but one would slip in without warning every now and then. He did live till `15 1/2

  • My blk/wht used to have seizures occasionally up to about age 4. She was so wired up and excitable that the vet said her brain electrical functions would misfire. She get wobbly and throw up then be fine. It stopped after she started mellowing out.

  • How old is Polly?

  • Polly is 9 this Christmas. Dec 14th to be exact!
