Thanks for the info. I do not know her breeder for she was adopted from the Humane Society. I have been trying to figure out what triggers them, but only anxiety seems to be the common denominator. I always worry about how much vets are comfortable with the Basenji breed. I did talk to a Vet and they said that they don't encourage seizure medication unless they are extremely frequent.

Basenji Lover in Florida
Bella is my 2nd tri-color Basenji. She was a gift to me from some sympathetic friends who knew how devistated I was when my 1 year old passed away. He slipped out of the car behind my back, into the path of a pick-up truck. I am so very protective of Bella and am fully aware of the fact that Basenjis don't understand traffic. She is a beautiful girl, but about a year ago (she is 3) she started having seizures periodically. I am concerned about what may be causing them. They almost always happen when I come home and she loses control of her legs, urine and stares blankly. Sometimes she will throw up after it is all over. Yesterday, I was only gone 2 hours and she had one when I got home. Today, she had her first seizure while I was home. The neighbors dogs suddenly showed up in their fenced in yard and were barking at her, which is nothing unusual. She ran back and forth a few times and then layed down. It seemed strange so I brought her into the house and she had one immediately. Her seizures can be several times in a month or none at all. If I am upset and may not even be showing it, she seems to have more. Any ideas out there? I really don't want to put her on medication…
