Some of you know, I have dogs. 2 dogs. A beagle/basset mix name Linus and a beagle named Candi.

Well, Saturday morning, Candi had a seizure. It was a little seizure (as things go). She shook all over and she couldn't stand or walk while it was happening...Then she wandered around like she was drunk for a couple of minutes.

Took her to the vet and they observed her for a while, and took some blood. Now, Candi hates the vet. HATES the vet. So, she was drooling the entire time they had her in back, away from us. She was absolutely drenched by the time they brought her back out to us.

On Sunday, they called with the results of the blood tests. There was no significant biological indicators for the seizure. So, this means that either she had a one time seizure, or Candi is facing the onset of epilepsy. According to my mother (she's a vet tech and dog trainer,) beagles can develop seizures at a higher rate than some other breeds. I hope it's just an isolated incident. Cause anti-seizure medication will eventually kill her. It's really, really hard on dogs. I might have to try accupuncture. My mother said that it seems to have a pretty good effect. The question is finding a canine accupuncurist in my area.
