Help! Epilepsy/Muscle Spasm or something else
I have a four year old female GSD who over the last few months has been having fits of some sort.
First her back legs become weak and she walks around looking shaky, they then give way beneath her. then her fronts legs collapse and she is lying on her side unable to move. After a 2-3 of minutes she begins to get sensation back first in her front and then in her back legs. A few minutes later she is back on her feet jumping around as if nothing happened with no remaining symptoms. She does not twitch or shake she is just unable to move. The attacks happen about once a month.
The vet thinks it is epilepsy, but cannot be sure as he has not seen it happen. The medicine does not seem to have had any effect. Also from reading the forum the symptoms of epilepsy seem to be a bit different from hers as their is no shaking.
Does anyone one know what this is or what sort of medication/diet she should be on. Not sure we should do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
