    Default Seizure, wetting and vomiting

    Our little Bertie is 2 years 3 months old. We have gone to France for the weekend and been told by the pugsitter that suddenly Bertie went rigid, as if having a seizure and wet himself. While the sitter was talking to us Bertie suddenly was sick and then lay down in his bed.

    Normally our pugs each have a 1/4 of a tin of Arden Grange chicken with rice and veg (pure, very healthy, tinned wet food), although today I found 2 half full tins both of which were less than 24 hours old, so they had 1/2 a tin each. Just before I took them to the sitter they each also had 2 dessert spoonfuls of fat-free greek yoghurt and 10 blueberries, which they love and helps to stop pug farts. The sitter has given them their usual 1/4 tin of Arden Grange PLUS some kibble.

    Is this change in diet enough to trigger a seizure in the dog?

    Given their age, - can this be a sign of PDE?

    Can this sort of thing be detected by a blood test?

    I am getting him taken urgently to our local vet tomorrow with an instruction to take him to our emergency vet if necessary.

    It is hard to tell what caused it!

    Due to age...It could be just a freak seizure.....could be PDE...or anything in between.

    Ask your sitter to write down or you write down...food.....events during the day...What happened when he seizured. (His behavior) and how long it took him to come back to himself!

    Seeing good reports!

    Good news, no more seizures etc. In fact Bertie apparently led a raid on the sitters 'treat' drawer with his brother and the sitters' 2 pugs and they stole 4 bags of treats between them!

    I hope that Bertie stays himself and all continues to stay calm. Positive thoughts for all of you!

    Angus has an occasional seizure, we have found no cause for them he has not wet himself though. It usually happens when he gets really excited chasing the cat or just after a bath. Can't figure what does it, he was really barking at the Lab the other day without incident.

    I hope all is well and no tummy aches from the raid on the treats!

    We have neighbours who have two male pugs, and one of theirs has a seizure every few months. He's had check ups from the vet, but no cause found. Straight after he is back to normal again. I don't think he is incontinent though. These things are very strange.......
