Frightened Mini Schnauzer - can anyone help?
Hi my mini schnauzer is 8 years old and very lively and healthy.
About three weeks ago we found him hiding in the bushes at the back of the garden trembling, shaking like a leaf all over.
He would not respond to us or come out.
We lifted him out and patted him. He was panting and shaking. After about half an hour he was OK and back to normal, playing with his soft toys.
Since then he has done it again about 3 or 4 times.
Does anybody know if this is some sort of mini fit or epilepsy? I thought epilepsy usually affected younger dogs?
We are taking him to the vet as soon as we can get an appointment this week, but has anyone had similar experiences?
Thank you for your help,
