Guest GreytsMom Posted September 24, 2008 Share Posted September 24, 2008 I have done a small search and could not find anything similar to what I will try to describe. This is the second episode in 4 years...can't be serious right? It is difficult syndrome to explain. First time it occurred after a scolding...fear response???? His legs splayed and it seemed he would not be able to continuing standing but he did. This seemed to feed his fear and he froze and was trembling a bit. We carried him to his bed and I stayed with him all night. No other visible symptoms. He was fine in the morning. Nothing for 4 years, than last night I was awakened by a noise and saw PJay's bed empty. I got up thinking he went downstairs (something he never does during the night) and needed to go out. Well, don't think he went down because when I did go down to see if maybe he had been down and had an accident, he followed me. Now, upstairs I did not notice his gait (dark). I was down first and heard him coming with loud thumps and bangs (his body against wall?). He did not fall down, although I thought that was what was happening due to the ruckus. He was upright and his legs did not seem to be in sync with his body and were somewhat splayed while he was walking and standing. After a few seconds of standing, I got him to move and guided him over to his bed in family room where he laid down and I stayed with him. No other symptoms other than a fear/bewildered look in his eyes (and I may be projecting that, but the look in his eyes was different). This morning, he did not move until I got his breakfast ready. He got up and just for a second, his gait was flim flammy, than he bounced and pranced about as he normally does for his meals. I had an older dog years ago who had a vestibular disturbance and I remember she vomited and did fall down the stairs I don't think this sounds altogether like this unless it is a mild case. I sure would like to hear from anyone out there who might have some ideas about this. He is back to normal now. Thanks... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
