My Jack Russell is having seizures and losing weight
by Steve Young
We have an 11 year old JR and he was abused as a pup. We got him from a rescue centre.He has got a misaligned jaw which was done to him when he was abused.
He has had several skin tags over the 7 years we have had him and now has developed lumps on his body. He is almost blind now and although he will eat like there is no more tomorrow he is losing weight rapidly and has been having funny turns almost like seizures.
He has always been wormed regularly so we do not think that is why he has a huge appetite. If he eats more than he should he is always sick. We feed him once a day and it is usually 150gram tray of bakers dog food. Anymore than that and he is sick. We have tried to split his food in to 2 times a day ( same amount 150g split in to 2) but he will be sick after the morning feed. He has total disorientation bumping into things and has to be right at my wifes feet all the time. He has always slept most of the day since we have had him but now he seems to constantly sleep except feed time.
Can anyone help please ? we obviously don't want to have him put down unless its the kindest thing to do. He used to be like a little barrel but now he seems to be wasting away.
