Pets With Seizure Disorders

Pets With Seizure Disorders

Are there many of us whom have pets who suffer from seizures? My Westie is a rescue dog. He suffered 7 years of abuse before coming into life. You might say rescued each other. 1 full quadrant of my brain was severely damaged prenatal. It's severity unknown. Magee suffers seizure disorders. Even psychogenic. You might say that he senses my seuzures nd goes through psychogenic myclonic jerks. We are awesome twosome.

My female dog hasn't been trained neither and she know's when something is going on with my seizures, so she makes me sit down and lays on my lap until it's all over.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member: All I know is that animals are given the same anticonvulsants as us.

I had a Pekingese dog who had puppies & the 2 out of 4 that she had survived & we kept the runt of the litter & the other went to our friends who had the father. Both puppies had seizures since birth. I started getting tremors right after I got my puppy named Muffin & she would come to me before I would have my tremors & I knew before she had her grand mal seizures. We always stuck together. I even knew something was wrong when she had a bee sting her in the eye & I was going away for the night & my parents watched her cause I told them something was wrong & the next day I came home with her in a conehat & she had to get her eye removed. I had surgery & when I came home she never left my side until she passed away at the age of 13 due to a seizure & sun stroke. My Pekingese puppy now who is the age 7 came home at 6 weeks old & had small seizures but always came to me before one will start. Her 1st night home she cried to warn me that something was going to happen & I had a grand mal seizure. She knows anytime something is wrong & she comes to me if she feels odd. I even had a time she had a grand mal one & she couldn't walk & she only laid down & couldn't stand. She stayed in my arms & once she was done she wouldn't walk cause she was scared so I kept her with me on the couch all night. I will always keep my puppy close to me.
