Our 17 yr.old dachshund is having some spasms, looks like seizures. She starts by going around in a circle, stumbles, her head turned to the right, but her body goes to the left. She has problems standing up. She has been very senile for the last year. MOstly blind by cataracts, been on thyroid medication for more than 10 years, has incontinence. Had a small mammary tumor removed over two years ago. NO tumors noticeable now. She can barely hear or smell anymore. These seizure type episodes are happening very often and we do not know how to care for her. Any suggestions of might it be?
Your pet should be seen by your vet asap. Sometimes they can be managed with medication. I recommend that you leave your pet alone when she has a seizure. Do not stimulate her in any way. Keep her in a safe area ( ie. away from stairs, sharp objects etc.. ) . vetcare
