Seizures R/T Toxin Ingestion
I am sorry to report that Henry (the Oprah star) almost dies last week. He ingested some toxic substance and developed neurological symptoms over the course of a few hours, and then began to seize. He was given a very poor prognosis with likely permanent damage if he survived. I opted for aggressive care...he was at an emergency hopsital the first night and the next day I took him to the Univ Vet Hospital. It took 48 hours of intensive vet care to get the seizures to stop and for him to start being responsive. Finally he came around and is almost back to his old self a week later. I notice only a higher startle reflex and perhaps a little slowness at times, as if he has to concentrate to figure something out. Other than that, he is neurologically intact and his organs are all functioning well. It is an absolute miracle--none of his doctors can believe that he not only survived but is in as good of condition as he is.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Do you notice anything different about your baby post continuous, protracted seizing?
Happy Mother's Day to everyone! I am sure our Yorkies are giving us extra love today. It is exactly a year since Henry came into my life. I am so blessed to have him.

Oh no, how scary!! Poor Henry! I'm so glad that he made it through. So, he ate a poisonous substance? Did you see him do it? I bet you were really scared. I'm soooo happy that he's okay now.

When my Diggy went thru seizures from low blood suger he was very disoriented and I was certain he had permanent damage. He was skiddish and would not lick or give kisses AT ALL. Took almost a week and a half for him to get to normal....Good Luck and I hope he gets 100% soon....

get well wishes for Henry the movie star!!!
What a scare!
Like dogs, we should sniff butts, not kiss them.
Dogs have more friends because they wag their tails, not their tongues. http://music.clevver.com/video/25815...ersion-300.php
