Black outs

by Olivia
(Bridgend )

My white jack Russell has blacked out 3 times in the last week and would like to know if anyone can think of a reason why please? She is 2 years old and has never done it before. She has been very cwtchy the last 2/3 weeks which is strange. She is till her bubbly self but just before it happens she is quiet and won't let anyone near her.


If anyone can suggest what could be wrong I would be very great full

Thanks in advance!

Jack Russell blacking out NEW

Blacking out is called syncope. You can read about it here: http://www.petplace.com/dogs/syncope-in-dogs/page1.aspx

It can be due to low blood pressure, lack of oxygen to the brain hypoglycemia, a heart issue.

I would definitely take your little guy in. Hope everything is ok!
