Please let me know if you discover anything about your minis condition. My 9 yr old male has had "exactly" the same symptoms 3 times in the past few months and we are at wits end about it. The first time we had just come home and as usual he and our other female mini were running around in the yard yapping and letting us know they were happy we were home. When I opened the door from the garage to the yard though, he was lying on his back/side doing exactly as you've described. My first thought was someone had shot him. With the absolutely piercing wail and his body stiff as a board and legs straight out and the terrified look in his eyes you are just sure he is dying, but as soon as I picked him up and held him like a baby talking to him and comforting him he seemed to come back to being totally normal. Same thing both other times except they were at night and but for the fact that I had the first experience during the day, I would have been sure it was just a bad nightmare, since he seems to immediately comes back to a normal state once I pick him up. I was going to take him in to the vet, but I just had him in to have his teeth cleaned and shots and everything checked out OK, so I googled his symptoms and came to this board. I can't see much sense in taking him at this point since every post where the poster has taken them to the vet, they are just told to keep an eye on them. Scary stuff though...no doubt.View Thread
