    Good morning. So Sheeba had a small seizure last night! Joe wasn't home, and I was drying my hair. I go out into the hall way and I see her laying kinda on her back with her paws around her snout...so I thought she was playing. Than I realize she is locked up like that and she started to convulse and I realized it was a seizure. My old dog, Ted, used to get them bad, he had epilepsy. So I'm sitting there with her, and talkig to her tryig to calm her down. Iit was so sad to watch, I HATE seeing that, this is why I could never be a vet. So anyway, after about 5 minutes she was done and was back up and running around like normal!!?? It was very strange. When Ted used to get them he would droul really bad, lose control of his blatter, be zoned out for hours, it was sad. So Sheeba didnt get that way so thats why I thought it was just a minor one, ?? Poor baby. I'm going to call the vet and see what they think. So strange, does anyone have any idea about why this happened? She is a Shiba Inu (Joe named her Sheeba, isnt he original? ha) and I'm not sure of any problems that breed might have... ??

        Jac that's scary! For sure call the vet and see what they think, maybe she sould go in and get checked. It's not good Ted had that before too, but at least it helped that you knew what was happening. Poor doggie Give her a hug from us.

          Oh no! Poor sweetie! I've no idea why it would have happened, but the fact that she recovered so quickly must be a good sign.

          Keep us posted!!!

              That's so sad I could never sit and watch that either if it was my pet I get really attached to mine. I hope you find out what caused it.

                :o( I know she is the sweetest dog and it is the hardest thing to watch. I just dont know WHY it happened. I thought maybe she got a hold of some pills laying arouund, like tylonol pm's or something (since im addicted!! lol) But they arent laying around all over, they are on my night stand. Maybe my cat knocked it off, ?? maybe she ate something outside in the yard, I have no idea. We will see, I'll keep u informed. When my old dog used to have them, the vet told us it was good to let them hear your voice to comfort them but not to get too close to their face, b/c sometimes they might snap at you, not being mean but just a scared reaction, and if they get ahold of you, the jaw can locked due to the seizure :o( So keep that in mind if it ever happens to any of you. Ted grabbed my hand one time and my hand was black and blue and SO swollen!
