Our American Bulldog that had surgery for the rubber duck removal, had a seizure last night. Lasted about 1 minute, stiffened up, eyes rolled back in his head, messed himself a bit - then he was addle-headed for about 3 minutes and seemed otherwise fine. DF said he was shaking him the entire time, calling his name - but nothing until he finally just sat up, panting. I called the E.R. and they said nothing really could be done, but to watch him. I sat up all night with him, and other than the odd behavior of seeming anxious and panting heavily at times? He didn't seize anymore. This morning we were the first couple at the vets. For about a month and 1/2 now he's been panting heavily on and off, with some whining that he normally doesn't do. He's the big galoot, laid back kid in the bunch. We've watched it - checked him out for ears, allergies, nose to tail - nothing. He's neutered so thoughts of scenting a female and all that were possible, but not likely. He just has seemed very anxious but not addlebrained. The vet suspects brain tumor as a first thought, but since there were no stroke like symptoms leading up to the seizure? He's puzzled. They took blood, and we followed him around with a pan for a urine sample. When Casper wouldn't give one? They sent me home with a specimine bottle. Jokingly I told the vet tech at check out "Well it's going to be pretty tough for DF to get that sample in here, but I'll tell him to get as close to the dog as he can." - I got a raised eyebrow look from the girl that knows me and the new tech piped up and said "OH but you need to follow him around with a styrofoam bowl or cup or something then put it into the specimine container not have your husband get the dog to pee in the cup." I looked her in the eye as serious as I could (tongue in cheek) then said "You know that, and I know that, but we're not going to tell HIM that.....ARE WE?" regular tech knows I'm kidding - now new tech thinks I'm meanest dog owner alive. lol Anyway - if you have any ideas? I'm open - I did notice when I took up their den bedding that Caspies fleece padding smells a little like pee so I'm thinking maybe kidney infection? The vet gave me hyrdo-something for anxiety. lol - when I asked for something for anxiety our wonderful vet said "For Casper or you?" - If only. Thanks if you got this far.
