Reflections on the various diseases that hit the Akita
SA, panic attacks and various kinds of fits
My Akita Kari, who is no longer with us suffered from SA.
Prior to the first SA break-out, she had a few fainting fits now and then, often in combination with some kind of stress. We hade her examined several times but they did not find any cause for the fits. They actually disqualified epilepsy as a possible reason.
As she got older she also had, to us, unexplainable panic attacks (really really afraid). It appeared often to be a scent or a sound that used to be familiar to her, now scared her.
I wonder; did the SA make her ear-canals/ear-drums as well as the mucuous membrane inside her nose – dry and brittle so that she experienced scents and sounds different than before – or was it caused by something completely else?
Lately, I have a feeling of that the amount of Akitas with various types of fits (passing out) and panic attacks have increased.
Questions to you
- Are there Akitas out there who has similar reactions?
- If YES, are these Akitas also suffering from SA or any other auto immune disease?
Any kind of “Akita” is of interest to me. Please feel free to make comments.
