Hank often dreams - complete with kicking, snoring, yelping, etc ❤

Tonight, the kitty was acting odd next to Hank and I could hear Hank in his dream state. I wanted to catch the interaction on video and in the dark opened up my camera. I saw that he wasn't sleeping and was shaking and wobbly. When he finally got up then he couldn't walk straight. I got a short bit of it on video. Any thoughts? He seems to be doing okay now. My poor boy. He is almost 9 and other than allergies (which y'all have helped tremendously) I believe is healthy. Thank you!

Oh no poor boy! I would definitely show that to the Vet for sure. Has he ever done that just getting up from sleeping? That does kinda look like a seizure its definitely something wrong there. Its a good thing you filmed that because its much easier for the Vet to see it for themselves. I would keep a close eye on him all weekend until you can get an appt.

Has he had seizures in the past? I would take him to the vet to get him started on medication ASAP if seizures. My sister’s boxer had similar episodes. Turned out to be a mass growing on her brain. It could be serious. I would go to the vet.

I was just thinking one of my female Boxers had at one time upon getting up from sleeping started staggering around and to make the long story short she turned up with AIHA which is an auto immune disease. Her blood count was very bad so maybe see if the Vet wants to do blood work on him.

Thank you! I'm hoping to get him in today or tomorrow 🤞 but thankfully he hasn't had any further concerns this weekend.

So sorry to read that, prayers and best wishes for a good outcome.
video reminds me of bassett hound we had many years ago. Developed seizures when older but to be honest not sure his age, possibly 7+. Turned out to be epilepsy. Medication helped for a while.

Update: Hank's blood work came back "normal" and he passed less than 24 hours later. Our hearts are crushed.

So so so sorry. That hole in your heart never closes, but does lessen as you keep the memories.

I am SO SORRY! Poor Boy! I know you must be devastated did they ever say what might be wrong with him? Did the Vet have any idea after watching the video what it might be? Again I know you must be devastated and we are sorry to hear this
