I don't like asking questions on my first post in a new forum but I really am worried about my 7 year old tabby Fancy. Seems she has been having siezures lately (spelling GAH!) and we're not quite sure what to do. We've already been to vet's but all they can give us is that maybe she accedently swallod a pill or something but this has been her 3rd one soooo I doubt that's it. Anywho could you all give me some ideas as to what may be going wronge and what to do about it?

Any and all help would be appreciated!
Thanks! `Jon

get a second opinion from another vet! There could be many different things going on with her it's hard to say. Yeah she could of swallowed something or could have fallen and gotten hurt or old age etc. etc...

I have a friend with an epileptic dog. He goes into seizures every once in a while. It happened once when he was visiting with the dog. It was hard to watch but there is little you can do besides hold them and make sure they don't hurt themselves. It lasted about 3-4 minutes.

I am not saying this is the case with your cat, but it is something you can ask about, maybe get tested for. I don't know but I sure things work out.

Don't stick anything in the cats mouth when it is having one and just make sure that when he is that you are making sure it stays safe and doesn't knock into somthing or hurt itself

She could be epileptic. I had a dog that was epileptic so I know the terror you feel when the seizures come. There are medication so I would try to find a vet that also is a catspecialist. If she is epileptic there´s a good chance she can live for many moore years with the help of medications.
