I hope Kody makes a full recovery Chris, and is well enough to enjoy the 19th Birthday feast! A nice phone capture by the way! #1482591

OM GOSH! Chris! Poor sweet Kody! How is she doing today on her birthday??? Did they say it was a seizure? What happened? Did she pass out??? Maybe it was a diabetic episode??? Fangy could have one at any time if his blood sugar drops too low...Dear little Kody. Please keep us informed!

Kody is part of the BP family, too!!!

Kody just started calling out very loudly, her eyes were open but not really seeing, her arms out straight, very rapid breathing, dribbling, she started to fall over, I held her & laid her down. After a few minutes she tried to walk, only managed about 6 steps & laid down, after awhile tried again, only another 6 steps. Off to the vet, by the time we got there she was looking out the car window. Blood tests showed nothing, she is walking around today like nothing happened. At present she is calling me to go outside & sit in the sun with her. Thanks so much for caring & asking after her. #10291539

Maybe she had a little heart attack? #10291801

Thanks John & Tiia.
Laura, I was thinking that or a stroke but they don't seem to think so, she gets over it to quickly plus her heart was really good!! She had another much smaller attack today, what a birthday present. She is now on 2 tablets to see if they will stop the attacks. #10291886

Thank you all. Kody has had an attack each day now, around 2pm, luckily much milder than the first one. #10293431

Poor Kody #10296667

Thank you all for your lovely thoughts & comments. Kody hasn't had a seizure for 5 days now, she's eating much better & not looking so frightened. Hopefully, she'll be able to cut back on her medication soon & be able to walk around in a more stead fashion. #10314657

Chris Ebben 9/22/2012 9:05:49 PM

I'm pleased to say, Kody is doing a lot better now her medication has been halved. She's not back to her old self but can now walk around the yard again & relax in the sun. #10333643

We had a bit of a scare this arvo, Kody had a bad turn & had to go to the vet. They aren't sure what happened to her but think she had a seizure, maybe due to her age. We are all looking forward to tomorrow to celebrate Kody's 19th birthday. This picture was taken with my mobile phone on the way to see the vet.
