"Dot CBC chemistry, and sometimes additional thyroid panel or you know, test of liver function. Oftentimes, this is done by the primary veterinarian their family veterinarian. I does the blood work. And then if the blood work is normal, they get referred to us for further case, and sometimes it's done by us. And then if everything is, you know under remarkable. And doesn't explain the seizures? The next step is to look for primary brain issues, and that's when the MRI to look for, you know, structural brain abnormalities or spinal tap, which looks for evidence of flyers or meningitis is done and the combination of these tests and most cases allow us to either identify underlying reason for the seizure untreated to the best of ability. Which many of these conditions are quite treatable manageable. Or if rule everything else out and everything is normal. That's you know, how we can objectively diagnosed idiopathic epilepsy idiopathic epilepsy for the most part is a diagnosis of exclusion. When we exclude all other findings out that people are oftentimes most concerned about their pets being in pain. And I've always said that seizures we can honestly say are not painful unless they fall down hurt themselves at cetera. Because. We can talk to people who have seizures and say is the seizure process itself painful, and my response to people is always been seizures are not painful in my correct in that. Yes, you are so Caesar's oftentimes are not painful, I would say probably more difficult for the people and household to see it. And it's could be quite devastating based on how people with seizures of people with epilepsy. They feel you know, definitely they could be essays before the seizure that the app the patient or patient or the pet could feel abnormal and for lack of term could feel awkward or Spacey.

"Welcome back to Dr cat gone to the dogs on live radio. Well, Dr buyers we talked about some things that might drive our pet owners to the ER. And there are some other really important things that I want to cover, and I actually see some of these things in my general practice as well. But can you talk about seizures? Yes. I was hoping that was going to be a topic that you brought up because seizures are scary. Nobody likes to see a dog seizure. Not not that are in areas. Not anybody. And there are lots of reasons for docs to have seizures. We generally categorize them in one of three major categories animals can have seizures because there's something going on in a vital organ like the liver or the kidneys. We call those systemic problems. That's one. One category. A second category is there's something going on in the central nervous system. So in the brain, and when we can't find a systemic problem, and we can't find a problem in the brain. Then we use the term epilepsy. There are some specific seizure scenarios that are considered absolute emergencies when any of these happen onerous need to get their dog to the closest emergency hospital as quickly and as safely as possible. So what are those scenarios one? If a dog has more than two seizures in a twenty four hour period that is considered an emergency technically the term for having that type of seizure activity is called a cluster of seizures and cluster. Seizures can be scary patients can deteriorate when they have cluster seizures. And so they should be seen by veterinarian as quickly as possible. The second scenario that requires immediate intervention is any Caesar that lasts more than five minutes. But ultimately stops when the body is having a seizure. There's a lot of muscle movement muscles are contracting and relaxing at really high speeds in that Haase's body temperature to go out. And so a lot of times when patients with this type of seizure are presented their body temperature when it's measured with a thermometer is really high proteins in the body. Don't like high temperatures those proteins actually for lack of a better term cook in the body. And when they cook they break down and they lose their function. They don't do what they're supposed to do in the body. And so we can have a lot of potential complications. Because of seizures that last that long the third scenario is when the seizure just doesn't stop. It goes for lunch. More than five minutes. It's not stopping at all that scenario is called status epileptic, and that is a quintessential emergency for any animal human cat dog. They need to get to the hospital as quickly as possible for some very aggressive intervention. Now, here's the thing patients with seizure disorders once they've been accurately diagnosed and effectively managed with medicines. The majority of them can go on to lead. Happy high-quality lives with their families at home. The point is seizures are not normal. Seizures should be fully investigated with your primary care. Doctor your primary care doctor may also recommend that you partner with a board certified veterinary neurologist, but in terms of emergency situations with a seizure patient. If your dog has more than two seizures in a twenty four. Hour period, if they have a seizure that lasts more than five minutes. But then stops in certainly if they have seizure activity that is not stopping those are distinct scenarios that necessitate bringing your dog to a veterinarian immediately. So we think of a seizure as kind of an active thing where the patient is moving and may or may not seem to be aware of what's going on. But we also see another problem that I think at lovers need to know is an emergency situation, and that is collapse. Could you talk about the collapsed dogs? Yeah. So claps can actually be a challenging issue for veterinarians to appropriately and accurately diagnosed because there's lots of reasons that adopted collapse. So we were just talking about seizures. And that is indeed one of the major reasons why animals collapse, another common reason that animals collapse. Is because they have underlying heart disease. When an animal collapses because of underlying heart disease, we use the term syncope syncope happens because there was a temporary moments where the brain did not get enough oxygen? And so the animal collapses and syncope or syncopal episodes can look very similar to seizures in. Indeed, as I mentioned earlier, it can be challenging for a veterinarian to distinguised seizures from syncopal activity. So really, the best advice is if you were had is experiencing collapse or an altered state of being it's a good time to get some medical help for sure. Yeah. Because did they collapse because they had a seizure did they claps because they have an underlying heart issue that caused syncope, and I would say the third major reason for animals to have collapsed episode is because. They started to bleed internally an internal Oregon like the liver or the spleen has a problem with it has for example, possibly a tumor, and it started to bleed, and when you bleed as you bleed progressively, you become weaker know when you're weaker you will ultimately collapse. So if your dog collapses, you may not know the reason yet that dog to animal hospital as quickly as possible in work with the medical team attending to your pet. So that we can figure out what caused that collapse. And hopefully, get your pet home to you to lead a very happy quality of life. Okay. So as an ER, doctor, there are probably some things that every ER doctor whether human or veterinary fees, and those are things like traumatic events. Can you just sort of tell us some of the interesting things that you have seen that were trauma? Oh, sure dogs like to get into lots of stuff outside. Don't they? So thinking of some of the. Exciting things. And you know, that sounds very weird to say to use the word exciting when I'm talking about animals being injured, but taking care of the sickest of the sick as I went into veterinary medicine, so I like helping patients that have experienced trauma. So we could be talking about animals that have been hit by motor vehicle involved in a car accident. We could be talking about animals that have fallen from a deck in the fractured ballet, they've broken a lamb. We could be talking about hunting accidents. Where animals have dogs have been accidentally shot with an arrow because they ran the wrong place at the wrong time, and if you live in a metropolitan region, you may also have dogs that are injured in our gunshot victims. So there are lots of reasons for animals to be traumatized doesn't always have to be not animal related sometimes docs, dose don't get along. And we have. An acronym in veterinary medicine that we use called AD L D, And what that stands for is big dog little dog. What we mean by that is a big dog attacked a little dog in caused significant trauma. It's not very common that a little dog is going to attack a big dog and 'cause meaningful life threatening injuries. But unfortunately, the same can't be said for the other way around. No, they don't that little dog syndrome is definitely true. But with the strength of the job of a large dog around the neck of a little dog or around the chest cavity of a little dog or the domino cavity of a little dog. We could really see some serious and truly life threatening injuries that necessitate immediate interventions in my emergency room. We see a lot of big dog little dog injuries as well as injuries caused by wildlife like diabetes. So I would hope that all my listeners would recognize those e r type things would be pretty obvious. I think but we've been over some things that might not be as obvious all my listeners have learned some things about what to watch for and win to call the animal. Do not forget that relationship with your own veterinarian is the most important. Two in keeping your dog happy.

And I personally did it to help my own fertility and then went back to the Keita genetic diet at once. I was three months into breastfeeding my daughter, so she's two now, so pretty tight since then. Good segue. Thank you for setting me up for the question of breastfeeding, pregnancies cetera. Kids on though in.
