My husband and I have had the pleasure of owning a beagle/dachshund for about 2 years now. He was a rescue and is now about two and a half years old.
Today he has his second seizure....he doesnt show any warning signs of it coming on and seems to go from start to finish in about 5 minuts.
Does anybody have any personal experiance or helpful words to help Nathan, Myself, and Oscar our dog/dear friend through this?

MarthaRG , Nathan ,

I do not have any personal experience with seizure problems , but since you have had no response I thought This may help.

I do know that it is possible to have reactions to flea treatment products and Heartworm prevention products. You may want to consider your dogfood ingredients as I have heard that some spice or other herbs can pose risk: for example , Rosemary...
Avoid vaccinations or chemicals.

I hope Oscar will get better soon.

Without expensive testing, how can my son be sure his beagle's 'episodes' are 1. seizures 2. epilepsy, food 'poisoning', or a brain tumor?
Hi stella ,

That is a tough question. Perhaps you could make some phone calls and locate a Vet in your area with experience in treating epilepsy.
It may be possible for an experienced Vet to make a preliminary diagnosis with Blood and Thyroid panel test , urine analysis and bile acid test along with a good examination and history and come up with a treatment plan that hopefully will help your dog without further expensive test.

Sending get well vibes for your Beag...

stella ,

Sending the specimen along with your dog was a good idea. Anything to help your Vet make diagnosis will help your dog. I am hoping that your Vet will come up with a treatment plan. Please let us know what you find out............

Sending get well vibes !!
