Guest TheRuffMuttGang Posted October 6, 2007 Report Share Posted October 6, 2007 About an hour ago we got to the lake and all was fine. I let the dogs out of the car and then put Stella down to chase behind them as normal. She was totally fine. My dad pulled up and I turned my back for 10 seconds. When I turned around I saw Stella frozen, mid-stride, her muscles all tensed up. She looked petrified. I thought one of the dogs had run her over but she looked fine physically (no grass or dirt or leaves in her fur as if she was rolled over). She looked the way she did when Mojo attacked her--just terrified stiff. I held her for a few minutes figuring something had scared her and then set her down and she was a bit wobbly but took off after the other dogs. She got back to just about normal and I figured I was right, she'd just been scared. A few minutes later I noticed she kept falling over while running so I picked her up and she was shaking, sort of like she was shivering (she was wet and the wind was blowing). I held her for a few minutes and set her back down at which point she took off running, though her hind end did not want to follow her front end. So, I called it a night, packed up and headed home to the other dogs' dismay since we'd only been at the lake 15 minutes. I decided we ought to head to the vet. I gave them a ring to let them know I was on my way even though they were closed. By the time I got there Stella was in full blown seizures. When the vet saw her she had her teeth clinched, was drooling and her eyes were darting. She never lost control of her bowels or bladder but her muscles were stiff and she was shaking. The vet is not sure what is causing the seizures at this point but he called a few minutes ago to let me know she is now sedated and sleeping and the seizures have stopped. It will take him a few hours to do a workup to find the problem but, and this is what I love about my vet (no, it's not an ER vet), he WILL call me before he leaves tonight and he will take her home if she is in serious enough condition. Please pray for my Stella pup. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
