He's 15, with no liver, on two types of daily medication for this issue. He's been going deaf over the last year and has been losing his perephial vision as well. This morning he was snoozing on the bed at hubby's feet. I snuggled my arms under the blanket and was giving him scratchies. He was groaning and stretching and just loving it. He got up after I stopped. He stretched, then looked down at the floor, then looked at me. I am such a sucker for his face, so I lifted him off the bed and set him on the floor. He started to stretch again, and I went to walk behind him. All of the sudden I tripped over him. I stumbled, then turned around. He was curled over his head on the floor and against the wall. His legs were extended, but he couldn't lie flat with his head curled under his body. I dove at him, righting his head and neck, and moved him so his nose wasn't pushed up against the metal heat register. Hubby jumped out of bed and we held him as he was stiff, then his legs started going, like he was running. His legs stopped, then his head started to nod up and down, he lost control of his bladder at that point. The entire time his eyes were wide open and showing his whites, staring straight ahead, and his jaw was clenched. He was also breathing very deeply, but not rapidly. Then he was relaxed, not stiff, but not moving. His eyes came back into focus and he started to shiver. We held him on the floor until he was ready to move.
He was really embarassed about peeing on the floor, asked to go out, then laid by the fire cleaning himself. We offered him some food and water, he didn't take water, but ate a few kibbles. Right now he just seems tired.
Searching on the internet, there isn't much on seizures in older dogs. Anyone else go through this?
He just had his annual check up in August, where our vet did a blood panel and checks his vitals. We do it every year since he lost his liver.
Nothing new has been used in our house, no change in his medications, he hasn't been anywhere new, no new food, etc.
