Within maybe an hour or less,he was just his regular self...tail perky,kinda jumpy and playful (you know the little extra hop in their steps). I was totally freaked out and I think it scared him as I approached him and kinda was forceful yelling at my husband at the same time. He cowered and acted scared. That was my opinion of that (I caused it),but I was scared and wanted my husband to know something was wrong with my boy! IDK.....I have never seen or had that happen before with my boys. I have seen seizures at the vet's office,but they were severe and the legs trembled and the body trembled and shook. It wasn't like that at all....but I don't think I have seen a mild case before.
I first thought he was attacked by another dog......but no.
Then I thought he had injured himself on the tie out.....no
Then I thought he might have a thorn or something wedged in his paw pad ...no
I laid him upside down on my lap and went over every inch of that boy to find nothing! It hasn't happened since and so I wondered if anyone had had that happen,like he jumped and hurt a muscle or messed up his hip? Or something. It just scared the crap out of me because it reminded me of Vinnie honestly.....Vinnie was hit by a car as a puppy and had his leg/testes etc. rolled (horrific) and would try like a 3 legged dog to get up the steps,over and over. He had leg issues (it's fused now--but effects his hip) and when he lays for a long time he has trouble getting up quick. But Quince was not hit by a car......I am positive on that.
The other thing that puzzled me was his lack of pigment on his gums. They were very very light pink and he was heavily panting. I wondered if he over heated and that effected him? Is that possible?
