I went to the vet yesterday about what I thought may have been seizures in the night because Trapper had brought up alot of bile. The vet changed her food and says it was probably something she found in the yard and ate and not necessarily seizures but to watch her close and bring her in if it happens again. He says they should't bring up bile after a seizure but I know she did last time. My family is going skiing next week and my neighbor was going to let her in and out and she would be alone at night but now I am afraid to do that even though the other dogs will be here for company I am afraid she will stress when we dont come home at night. Does anyone think stress can bring on seizures? The two times she had them we were late getting home and she had been alone longer than usual which made me think she may have gotten upset.

Colleen: From what I've read, stress can bring on seizures in a dog and it sounds like that may have been a factor in Trapper's previous seizures. Any possibility of a friend staying in your home while you are away? Although he might be just fine, I would hate to have you worry about Trapper while you were on vacation trying to relax!
Spook's vet says that stress and excitement can bring on seizures. As far as I know, that hasn't been a contributing factor for Spook but, like humans, I'm sure different dogs have different reactions. Judy's suggestion about someone staying at your home while you're skiing seems like a possible solution to keep you from worrying.
