Are Shih-tzu's known to have seizures ?
by Melissa Horn
Hello my name is Melissa and I am Sassy's human. Sassy is 12 yrs old and I have had her since she was 2 months she has never had any health problems (except snoring).
She runs and plays like a puppy but yesterday (probably a coincidence)My husband was playing the banjo and Sassy was laying in the floor streched out and jumping like she was dancing. She has never like noise but normally she will just walk out of the room. I could not get to come to me she would just look at me normally shes very close to me.
She was just acting strange don't get wrong she has her weird days to whew she won't do anything at all and then she is fine. So this morning she woke up being her old self again she ran and had a good time dragging me behind her when I took her for her walkie walk . then mid afternoon she started shaking again this time she was under my feet and wouldn't let out of her sight it was almost like she was scared of something,Then I was cooking supper and she was laying out of the laundry room ( she has never laid there ) and I kept checking on her to make sure she was ok and I called to her and she went to get up and she tried to pick up her leg and it looked like she couldn't figure out what to do with it she started jerking around and she couldn't stand up.
I put her in her bed and covered her up and she is snoring away right now. ( My husband says it is probally the cold floor she was laying because she never lays on anything but her warm blanket so he thinks the cold got her )
If any one can help me please let me know ? I am taking her to the vet tomorrow morning. She just got up and got a drink of water. Melissa And Sassy
