Ashy, our Dachsie Mix

From: user 7.

Hi,
 
The Dachsie Mix we adopted in January, Asher, may be epileptic like Max was. He's had two "episodes" (a month apart) but they were so unlike Max's seizures that we're not totally sure what happened. He's fine after about 3-5 minutes.
 
It's like he stiffens and draws his back legs in, in pain. He's silent, still aware but looks terrified, and licks his lips continuously. Last night he staggered around for a minute like Max did then threw up.
 
Both times he's just been laying still napping when it happened, like Max. At first we thought he slipped a disk but not now because he was literally laying still.
 
I can't get him in on Base for a while so we're watching him for now. If it happens again I'll see if the civilian vet can get him in immediately.
 
I guess God sent him to us since we already had experience with this.
 
Anna, Cocoa and Ashy
