|Tate on his 10th Birthday, taken by Wendy Devent|
I had given him half of a Valium at 1 am , at 1:30 he still wasn't settling so my husband and I carried him up to our back porch. We put up a gate, I sat on the stairs , gave him another half of a Valium, and just let him circle. He kept whining continually as well :(
Each time he stopped by me I tried to get his head, massage his ears, see if he was coming out of it, but no, it lasted until 2:30 before he finally laid down, we were both exhausted. I laid on floor in the porch with him for another hour or so, just to make sure he was sleeping and not going to have another one.
My vet told me to give him a whole Valium right off the bat next time. This seizure was 2 months between, now we will wait and see when the next one will happen. They will eventually start coming closer together, I hope they don't start lasting longer .
The strange thing is Tate's breeder emailed me again just a couple of days before this seizure, another littermate of Tate's had passed away, first Crusier, then Haley a week later, so scary for me to hear this
Tate slept a bit more then usual for a few days after his seizure and he seems somewhat weaker in his hind quarters, other then that his appetite is good, even excessive, he always wants to eat now , that is fine with me, whatever Tate wants , Tate gets these days ♥
