What about the Aussie or the rough collie? Years ago I had a half aussie half lab and grooming him was a nightmare because he would get so matted between brushing and he was brushed three to four times a week. He had the aussie feathering on the backs of his legs the underside of his tail his belly and chest. His worst spot for mats though was behind his ears. Another breed I would think would be a pain to groom would be the pommie.

Senior Dogs > Petit-mal seizure?

I know when Maggie was alive, a vet told us to rub clear karo syrup on her gums or put two drops under her tongue to jack her blood sugar back up after the seizure. I hated watching her go through each one knowing that there was not much I could do for her. She lost so much weight last summer which told us that it was cancer because she was eating 6 pounds of food per day. We were giving her two 3 pound coffee cans of food per day to try and get her to fatten up again when she started to drop serious weigh in late April early May last year. Her vet had told us in March of last year that she had brain cancer. She would still have a seizure here and there but she would go almost three months between them. When she passed away in October last year we were gone away from home but we think she had a seizure, she always had grand mal seizures, and her heart just couldnt handle the strain of the seizure. I still find myself looking for her now and then even though I can look over and see her urn on the shelf under the tv. Before I took her off the meds the vet she was seeing had her on an extra high dose of Primidone. she was taking 250 mg 2xs a day and she would still have at least 2 seizures per day.

Hugs to you during this time. I know that Maggie will be waiting for Sabi at the bridge and will be more than willing to show her around. If I know Maggie she will even show Sabi the best trees to lay under and the best clouds for sleeping on. And Maggie's two pups will always be up for a game of tag with a new friend.

In October it will be a year since Maggie passed away. I still have her ashes and now and then I take her urn outside and talk to her about the day. I know she would love our new home. I keep planning on taking a small amount of her ashes up to the very first place we went with her after we brought her to live with us. I miss my girl every day but each day the pain eases.

If I had only one or two dogs I would take him as we LOVE pit bulls. I know my stepson was like the boy who owned Kisses. He got all pissed off because when Maggie was alive and on her Primidone for her seizures I asked him to be home ONE afternoon so she could get her meds on time because I was going to be meeting my brother for the first time and wouldnt be home in time to give her the pill. He told me that he already had plans and he didnt have to give her the pill because she wasnt his damned dog. So I ended up having to cancel on my brother. I wouldnt trade all the time I had with Maggie girl but I miss her like crazy and I know deep down that she is better off now that she is waiting at the bridge for me.

I know when my late husky Maggie was still alive she could be perfectly fine one minute and seizing the next. She would have one or more every twenty days. We took her to the vet several times and begged.pleaded and ordered him to do blood work to get nothing more than a sore throat. He put her on Primidone 250 mg twice a day but it did nothing for her other than make her sleepy, and she wouldnt eat much at all. I finally took her off it and she went from 1-6 every 20 days to 1 in 83 days. We later had a talk with our regular vet who suggested that it was either a tumor or lesion on her brain, that was in March of last year sadly she passed away in October of last year. I could always tell when she was close to having a seizure because she would start to have a smell to her that was sort of like she had rolled in something dead and covered in horse manure I know it sounds gross but that was her smell for about two days before the seizure. She got to a point where when she was coming out of the seizure she would bite if you touched her because she didnt seem to know where she was or who her favorite people were. I kept a log of all her seizures, date,time, duration (length) and what was going on weather wise. In a lot of ways I am glad that her suffering is over but I still wish I could have her back again.

Dog Health > Possible Seizures?

When Maggie was having seizures before her passing she would usually fall down and paddle or run with just her rear feet. She would often foam at the mouth and lose control of her bladder and sometimes she would end up messing herself as well. There was only one time I remember her biting either the inside of her upper lip or her tongue and causing it to bleed. She also had a focal or head seizure once where it looked like she was standing there shaking her head no very rapidly. We think that the day she passed away she may have had a seizure that led to her passing. However she had either a lesion or tumor on her brain so there was nothing we could do because of her age. She was with us for 8 months after the diagnosis and I miss my sweetie every day.

My beloved Maggie had seizures and they were not controlled by medication but one thing we did do with her is as she was coming out of the seizures we would put two drops of clear corn syrup under her tongue and rubbed it on her gums as well to boost her blood sugar. On the medication she would have anywhere from 1-6 seizures in a day every 20 days but once we took her off it she went from having 1-6 every 20 days to having only 2 or 3 every 83 days. Sadly she crossed the bridge last year on October 28th around 2 pm. I miss her deeply every day and yet I am glad that it is all said and done. I have sworn that I will never take on another special needs dog after her because I cannot deal with the constant worry and stress.

My late husky Maggie had seizures for two of the three years that we had her. They were very scary for me to witness. We took her to a vet who when I asked and demanded that they do blood work on her refused to do so claiming that it was too expensive. I called another vet who got in contact with her former vet and they came to the conclusion that her seizures were brought on by either a lesion or a tumor on the brain. They told us that in March of last year and she crossed the bridge at home on her own on October 28,2012. I was crushed to say the least. That being said the seizures she would have the last few months of her life got to a point that if we tried to touch her during or after one she would bite or snap at us. We would wait about half an hour after she came out of one to give her a little bit of clear Karo syrup which we would rub on her gums and put two drops under her tongue. She didnt like it but she allowed us to do it.
