    Question Need help please

    I am a new member and this is my first post,

    i have 2 cavaliers, Harry aged 5 and Jasper aged 5 months

    Jasper has been having these episodes where he will colapse is unable to stand but is well aware of whats going on around him, his tail still wags in true cavalier form they last a few seconds to a min and is back to his usual happy self, his first episode was the day we brought him home and he has 2 or 3 a week.

    i have read on here about falling syndrome and the videos that i have seen are exactly like Jaspers episodes.

    is his life in danger??

    I don't think Episodic Falling Syndrome, if that is what Jasper has got, is life threatening.

    Look at this website http://www.episodicfalling.com/

    it is when it's happening, but he's back to his happy self within minutes

    my vet does home boarding and Harry and Japer stayed with him for a week in March, and he only said that Jasper didn't like going on walks, never mentioned anything else x

    Do you usually hold him while it happens? I've seen videos of EF before but he really does throw himself about, I'm worried he'll bang himself on something.

    yeah but i wanted to record him this time so i can show my vet, thought it would be better than trying to explain

    as soon as i got what i needed i did give him a hug to sooth him til it passed x

    Do you have any warning it's coming on and does it distress him?

    he runs funny. like a bunny hop and his back arches
    and no he shows no signs of distress thankfully, tail wagging as normal
