I groomed a dog for years that had seizures once in a while. They started after she put camphofinque (sp) on a sore on the dog. Another I groom started after they took her on an airplane and gave her a tranquilizer so she would be 'good' on the plane.
Panda has had dentals before and nothing happened, but it was at our regular vet who uses gas and are more modern. And as I said, another little male went with her and had a dental also and he is fine. Hard lesson learned, we wont be going back to this vet, EVER. We have 3 vets in this little town and they are all old fashioned. So I drive over to the next town to another vet.

Interesting. She did suffer a trauma to her hind as a pup - accidently stood on. She was treated and recovered. We didn't become her owners until she was 7 years old and we've had her about 4 months now. But then, her mother always suffered with these seizures so I think perhaps it's hereditary?
