    Default Charlie had a fit :(

    Charlie had a fit this morning, i didn't actually see it but my mum and brother did. He'd just got out of bed and he was stretching like he always does and then he sort of rolled over and starting shaking and screaming and then afterwards he was really quite and he wouldn't move, also he wet himself.
    We took him to the vets and they said it could be epilepsy or maybe a brain tumour, they took his blood and there gonna let us know the results.
    He has been having partial fits where he just shakes a little and stares but they only last a couple of seconds but he's never had anything like he had today.

    I hope they find out what is wrong and can help poor Charlie. I have no idea but some type of seizure sounds possible. Please keep us posted

    I think it's worth having an Mri scan done to rule out SM.
    Normally I would suggest this as a last resort but it seems very similar to how Daisy used to be before medication.
    A morning stretch on the decking would result in a yelp and the full roll on the ground screaming is very alarming for anyone who has to witness this.Try and record it if possible to show the vet.

    Hi Charlotte, which specialist is Charlie under for his heart? It would be a good idea to see a neurologist, who will initially perform a clinical examination. Dr. Clare Rusbridge in my opinion is the best and she is not far from you. If you need any help with tranport or anything let me know, I do not live far from you.

    CHARLIE HAD A FIT


    Charlotte,

    As the others have suggested ,maybe you should have a MRI Scan done on Charlie.

    Our Becky had Epileptic Fits, she would lie on her side ,have what you could see was like Paddling motions with her legs, and her Eyes would be Flickering all over the Place and yes she did pass water.

    Did'nt know us but never screamed.

    Hope all goes well for Charlie.

    I'm so sorry, how scary for you. I hope you can get the seizures under control with maybe gabapentin. Does anyone know if they used that for dogs epilepsy?

    Just wanted to say that I am thinking of you! Let us know how the vet went. I have no good medical advice like the other, but just wanted to send our hugs
