I had to rush Darcy to the vet his afternoon as I think she had some sort of fit, although I don't know if that's the right word to describe it.I explained everything to my vet and she said it sounded like she had a fit or seizure. She asked me about poisons or medicines but Darcy hadn't been near any. There was no changes to her diet and she hadn't been injured in anyway. The vet asked about bee or wasp stings, I can't say for definite but I don't think Darcy had been stung (she was stung once before and she cried out straight away). I have very few plants in the garden so I don't think it can be that. The vet took some blood tests but unfortunately the results won't be back until Monday. She sedated Darcy to help relax her muscles and will keep her in for the afternoon to see if has any more episodes. If she has no more than she will let her home.
I was outside talking to my neighbour and her little daughter in the garden and Darcy was with us. When I looked down at Darcy, she was holding her right paw up and limping and looking a bit odd, so I picked her up and noticed she was shaking. I brought her inside and her shaking became worse (but not jerky), she started drooling and her eyes became very wide, she looked quite dazed. This continued for possibly 2 minutes or so and then she slowly came back to normal, the shaking eased and her eyes returned to the right size. She then seemed to return to normal quite quickly and she hopped down from the couch and walked normally and took some water and a treat and even wanted to play.This lasted for maybe 5 minutes or so and I thought the worst had passed, however she began shaking very hard again and her eyes became wide and streaming. The drooling was much worse than previously and her body started arching and she made a few small whimpers. This episode lasted for maybe a minute and a half or so. She slowly started to return to normal and by the time I had grabbed my keys and phone to bring her to the vets she was back to normal and even wagging her tail as we were going in the car.
If anyone has any thoughts on what this might be, I would aprreciate any advice. It was an extremely upsetting experience and I couldn't think clearly to ask the vet all the questions I needed to. I'm still shaking here.
