I'm not even truly sure it was a seizure but I don't know. Tonight we were watching tv and Max was being pesty as usual but seemingly agitated. He was up and down on the couch, wouldn't settle, killed a random toy he found, etc. He's weaning off a short course of pred so he's antsy and I chalked it up to that.
At any rate, he was standing in front of S and all of the sudden he went rigid, left eye fully dilated with the 3rd eyelid all the way out, neck/head cocked to the left and right front paw drawn up like he was pointing or had a bicep cramp. We grabbed him and put him on his left side on the couch until he regained some semblance of awareness. I massaged his right bicep until it uncurled then his left clenched up so I massaged it. He was tucking his toes under after it was over. At some point he got off the couch, went to his bed and promptly passed out hard. He got up to go out, emptied a fairly full bladder and went back to bed about 1½ hours after the episode.
This is new, we've never seen it before so I'm not sure it is a seizure or really what to do about it. He was in the vet last week for a cough and had a low resting heart rate of 70 bpm. He also recently developed a cataract in his right eye but no signs of diabetes. Do I just watch and wait? What do I do when it happens? Does it even sound like seizure behavior? Gah! I'm not going to do lots of extraordinary measures (pacemakers and lasik were thrown around by vets this month) for extra, yet shitty, time but I will do reasonable things for good quality of life. Max is 11 with chronic health issues (likely stemming from the shitty pet store breeding he has). I want as good of a life as he has left.
