This morning’s incident
During our walk this morning, Konatsu vomited yellow gastric juice. I had seen this happen several times before, and I thought it might be because she was too hungry. and didn’t pay much attention to it.
This morning, however, Konatsu began to wobble on her feet, and as if she had lost her footing, she collapsed from the hips and fell to the side. I was surprised because I had never seen such a symptom before. I hurriedly called Konatsu’s veterinary clinic and was able to get her seen before the clinic opened.
The doctor examined Konatsu and found that her heartbeat was normal and that there was nothing else wrong with her. The doctor’s diagnosis was that Konatsu was probably suffering from senile epileptic seizures. The doctor’s diagnosis was that it was probably senile epilepsy, a symptomatic form of epilepsy caused by damage to part of the brain due to the decrease in the number of brain cells caused by aging. So Konatsu has reached such an age. The doctor gave her a subcutaneous steroid injection and we returned home.
After returning home, Konatsu was anxious for a while, perhaps because she felt something was wrong with herself, and she had this expression on her face
When I went to the hospital again in the afternoon to check Konatsu again, she was in such good health. Now I no longer have to worry about things like I did this morning. Since Konatsu is now a senior dog at over 12 years of age, it made me think that I needed to take better care of her health than ever before.
