we had a rough weekend, last week. my, will be three next month, rottie started having seizures a couple months ago. it would be when we went to feed her, like she got to excited. i would put her in the kitchen, make up her bowl in the dog room, then let her out there to eat, and that seem to help alot. almost like she was not so excited, like when she would sit there and wait for it to be set down for her. anyway i am scared of them, because i can't watch them. it kills me to see it. i also didn't know how many was a lot. well last weekend, she started having them just laying next to me on the floor. she would sit up and start banging her head on the wall. fall over and start shaking, then she would start the paddling. you could see the fear in her eyes, it is horrible. when she did come to again she would run around the house. she ran to the dog room and went poop. when she came back into the family room the foam was about six inches long hanging out of her mouth and bloody, so i knew she must have bit something. it was one of the worst ones she had. she wouldn't settle down for about six or seven minutes. then she laid next to my husband on the floor of the living room. i went to the ceillar to check on my hatch and i could hear her having another one. this time i was down stairs and she was above me on the hard wood floor. it was so hard to listen to it. i came up stairs just as she came to and started running around the house. we have to move all the other animals, when this happens, because she will attack them, because she is scared and doesn't know who they are. heck she doesn't know who she is at that point. anyway she had them one after the other that weekend. i called my vet, which is an hour away, and i couldn't get in until monday. they said if she many more to take her to the er. has anyone ever been to one, what a rip off. (i took a stray cat there, all my animals are rescues or homeless, that got hit by a car. i walked in and said my cat has a broken leg. $600 later they came back and said the cat has a broken leg. it will be $2400 to do surgery and but one of those halo things on it. i said cast it and i am leaving. long story short took her to the same vet i got the appt for monday and $300 later we are good to go. you wouldn't know that cat got hurt.) i thought about it all weekend. i couldn't spend thousands of dollars to have all these test run and i couldn't live watching have them all the time. i was prepared to put her to sleep on monday when i got there. i thoght for sure it was tumor, or cancer, or bacterial infection. they said it was epilepsy because of her age. my vet wasn't worried it was anything else. she said can usaully be caused my a head trauma. well she was kicked my big gelding, both hoofs to the face. she said, yep that could do it. she put her on meds and said she will have as little as one or two a yr. the meds are $10 a month, which i can do. she did say that she may seem out of it for the next couple weeks while she gets used to them. well, i think the meds make her stupid. litterally! she doesn't listen or behave. it has been five days and she is very naughty. when we go in the ceillar she eats out of the cat box. not just walks by. we have a little privacy gate around it. she will knock it over and digs like mad throwing out all the litter to get a snack. i can stand right there and tell her to stop. it is like she can't hear me. i try to pull on her to get her out and she pulls harder to get her snack. she will eat out of the cat dish. i could say leave it to a steak on the floor. not anymore, she is crazy. she whines constantly. if we put her in the dog room with a baby gate, she would go lay on her bed for hours, no problem. you put her there now, we have to shut the door, because she will sit there and cry. thanks for listening. does anyone else have a dog being treated for this? and does it ruin your dog? i would love to have my dog back that i have spent a long time to get her to behave. i got her at nine months old and she was locked in someone garage for six months. the wife said it was too big. as you can guess, she was a little crazy. she has became a pretty good dog, but now she is almost as bad as when we got her.
