10 wk old had 1st seizure

Postby Yatzee » Sun May 20, 2018 9:23 am

I'm waiting on an order from fox valley for more formula. I ran out and am using 21st century essential pet puppy formula. I used it last night and again this morning. My 10 week old just had a seizure 20 minutes ago. He has never had one before today. Could this formula have caused it or is it just a coincidence?

There's a decent chance it could be the formula there is little to no real quality control with the commercial animal formula companies. There have been incidents where big companies changed their formula and had animals die so that would be the major suspect here.

Another concern though could be distemper as it often presents as seizures that progressively get worse bt for now I'd use something different and hope it doesnn't happen again.

Try kmr until the order comes. At 10 weeks he's old enough for his distemper shots, I would have a vet do the first series if possible. For a house coon distemper is more a danger than other diseases,especially if you have cats or dogs. While at the vet have him tested for parasites.
