Leading veterinary specialist Dr Rod Straw said seizures are one of the most common neurological problems seen in dogs. Seizures occur when the cerebral cortex part of the brain functions abnormally, resulting in a range of visible health complications, he said. These may include the appearance of choking, abrupt behavioural changes, tremors, excessive drooling, a loss of balance, foaming at the mouth, uncontrolled urination, temporary loss of vision and loss of consciousness. Seizures generally only last for a short period of time, leading some pet owners to assume their pet is no longer in danger and has suffered an isolated episode. However, seizures may stem from a range of very serious underlying health problems, said Dr Straw. Potential cause factors include skull injuries, brain tumours, genetic malformations, ingestion of toxins, and infectious and inflammatory disease such as meningitis. Just like humans, many dogs have seizures caused by epilepsy with no specific underlying cause. The good news is epileptic seizures can usually be controlled by drugs. Pet owners who believe their animal may have experienced a seizure are advised to contact their veterinarian, said Dr Straw. He said there were some measures pet owners could take while a seizure is occurring to assist the vet. Recording information like when and where the seizure occurred, how long it lasted, your animals behaviour before the seizure and how long it took for them to recover after the seizure will help diagnose the cause and identify an appropriate course of treatment. Often, a short video clip on a smart phone can be very useful also. He said knowing what to expect, what to do and what not to do may make it easier to handle a seizure situation. Helping grow hope for sick children Louise Baxter and Captain Starlight receive a cheque from LivingSocial chief executive Adam Rigby. A DARWIN business has helped raise more than $50,000 for Starlight Childrens Charity. Allora Gardens Nursery took part in a deal with LivingSocial, a group buying website, which donated $2 to the charity every time someone bought its Allora online deal. The Berrimah business, run by Estelle Cornell, was a leading contributor to the campaign and the only Territory business to participate. The support of businesses such as Allora Gardens Nursery and the customers who purchased their specially created Starlight offer will go a long way to help us continue our work, Starlight Childrens Foundation chief executive Louise Baxter said. Last year, Starlight programs supported over 129,000 children in hospitals across Australia. Without donations like this, we would not be able to deliver our vital programs that support the wellbeing and resilience of Australias seriously ill children and their families seven days per week.
