    Yogi had another seizure this morning (nearly 6 weeks since the last one) but it was very different from all the others. With all the other she vomited then fell into her back/side and convulsed. Not violently but convulsions nonetheless. She didn't lose control of bladder/bowels and they last about 2 mins.

    Well this time there was no vomiting, she didn't fall onto her back and she didn't convulse like normal. She was laying sphinx like with her was held completely upright but she was sort of swaying it slightly and her eyes were completely out of it. She also did a very small poo. It seemed to last longer but that could just be that it was a lot calmer and no shaking so it seemed longer.

    Is it normal that they can change like this?

    I would think it could change and get less severe depending on the medication maybe its working

    She's not on any medication as she isn't having them often enough and they don't last long enough to warrant it. She does have diazepam to be given as soon as the fit starts buys that's it. Today however I was unable to give it as she was the wrong way round in the crate and I would have had to crawl in with her and she might become unpredictable while fitting and bite.
