No, not me...Flea! Brought her into the vet last night because she has had 2 seizures this month (the vet's policy is to consider medication once the seizures reach about 3 a month. He also said that seizures beget seizures...the more you have, the more you WILL have and that this medication works very well to control/stop them). Right now her seizures are lasting close to 2.5 to 3 minutes. Which is fairly long. The other morning, my alarm went off - which is her cue to run to the bed to be picked up and bury herself under the sheets with Corn. The other morning, she was trying to get over to the bed but something seemed off. I turned the light on and saw that she was moving towards me but dragging her back half. Her hind legs were stiff and immobile. I picked her up and she peed and her eyes were glazed over. I am pretty certain it was the tail end of a seizure where she was half-lucid and coming out of it. A few minutes later, she was 100 % fine.
It's hard to watch, but I think it must be similar to when humans have seizures - they black out. I just don't like the thought of her knowing it's happening. I can always see it in her eyes when she's 'gone'- they are just very flat and unemotive. She is always fine on the other end, so I think it's not too psychologically damaging. I am also not keen on meds, period. I mean, if I don't have to take them, I won't. But if it helps stop the snowball of seizure activity for Flea, then that's a good thing. And apparently the side effects are very minimal (just some sleepiness for the first while). That's comforting too.
The last 3 weeks, I have noticed her shaking her head. I cleaned her ears and checked them for smelliness (eew) and residue. All fine. But the shaking continued. Then, I wondered if it was seizure-related, but it's actually yeast! Little bit of a sitch in the right ear. So, we left the vet yesterday with some ear-meds. Which are deeeelish, by the way. On another note - if you ever need an awesome vet clinic, check out the Animal Health Clinic on Sherbrooke and NDG. Dr. Seto and Dr. Gilmour are FAN-FRIGGIN'-TASTIC (and they have a great staff).
Anyhoo, that's all I gots for now. Everyone's good on this end, hope you and yours are too!
