Unhappy Zooey had a seizure and fell off the bed

I just can't believe what's transpired this week. This morning when I was getting out of the shower and getting ready, I saw out of the corner of my eye as she fell over on her back on the bed, and then crashed on the hardwood floor, her whole body hitting the ground. She let out a sad cry and I thought she was going to die. It was the scariest thing ever. I picked her up, tried to stay very calm even though my heart was racing and I was shaking, told her she was going to be okay, and rushed her to the vet. By the time I got there, she was acting pretty normal. She had her blood drawn and blood pressure taken. Blood pressure was good, blood results should be in tomorrow morning. She is being treated for an ear infection, but otherwise nothing else is new with her. She is 8 1/2 years old and otherwise healthy. Vet said it can be anything from an isolated incident to late onset epilepsy to worse. I'm so worried about her :'( She one of my heart dogs.

Oh no! Poor Zooey. You definitely didn't need any more stress this week (or lifetime, really!) Fingers crossed there's a good an non-recurring explanation to be found.

Thank you, Twyla and Muggles. I am consulting with the vet right now. Z's blood work is totally normal, and we're wondering if it could have been a vertigo attack from her ear drops. That would probably be the best case scenario.

So sorry about that ! My little Chihuahua has had a few seizures. They are very rare. We might have seen 3 so far and she is 11. I wish the same for Zooey, even better, let this be the only one !

Poor Zooey and poor you! You have really been put to the test this week.

For what it's worth...just in case ..around the side of my bed (which is a low platform bed) I have put pillows, each one overlapping over the previous (like shingles do). This is because my elderly mini Jupiter has been known to fall out of bed. Usually in the morning I just stack them up the corner. I use old bed pillows. Of course since I started doing this, no more falling out of bed, but I feel like if I take them away something will indeed happen.

Actually I think that the older dogs just don't have the proprioception or sense of where they are, that they did when younger.

Good luck with all of your pack!

Boy, you've had a tough week! Poor Zooey! I hope all will be well and that it was, as you hope, just dizziness because of the ear infection.

Thank you, Dechi. I'm sorry Tamara has had seizures, but luckily not too many.

marialydia, thanks--I am absolutely going to re-do my bed so it's lower, if not on the ground!

After this week, I think I'm going to keep both of the girls in bubble wrap...

I hope it's an inner ear imbalance thing. This has NOT been a good week for your dear dogs. Another hug from Houston!
