How is EIC distinguished from canine narcolepsy? I came across this description on the site that offers DNA tests for narcolepsy in Labradors:
I have yet to witness either.Affected dogs are often described as falling fast asleep right in their tracks—but that’s not quite the case. Indeed, they suddenly lose control of their hind legs, or even collapse in complete, limb-numbing paralysis—yet they are entirely aware of their surroundings and can track things with their eyes. Attacks last a few seconds, or a minute or two, tops; then the dog is up again and moving, with no residual grogginess, no indication that things were ever amiss.
