Journey Posted October 23, 2007 Report Share Posted October 23, 2007 A episode is what some would say... I have a older boy, 11 plus, who in the past 3 months has had 4 "episodes" (for lack of a better term) where he sways on his legs, for about 20 seconds max, and the past two he has collapsed. During them he is alert and aware, muscles are not taught, pupils are fine, gums fine, temp normal. The collapse is slow, hind end then front as if he was going to sit to lay down. Not a seizure but we don't know what it is. This dog has been healthy all his life, one of those that see's the vet only if I want to weigh him.... We've run a CBC/Chem panel - all normal Thyroid - waiting on it TBD - none BP - normal 147/82 (after an episode) EKG - normal When it occurs it had been after he ran for the frisbee and came back, all until today happened w/toy in mouth. Today he simply ran after a bird, ran back to me (w/o the bird) and started to go down. They last anywhere from 10 seconds to 20 seconds. When he did collapse he was up and ready/wanting to go again right away. Both my vets are scratching their heads, no not a seizure, not EIC, they spoke to Dr Taylor, not sure what it is, no racing pulse, etc..... I can "induce it" with a toy, though that made me feel awful but they wanted to "see" it. Possible next step is the Neurologist. If I had to explain it simply it would be like when you jump up quickly and everything goes black for a moment - lightheaded. Anyone with a clue as to what I am talking about or ideas?
