My Springer Spaniel see things that are not there

My Springer sees things that are not there. He will stare at a spot on the floor, wall or in the air as if he can see something, then pounce at it. He does this continually, all the time. He is driving me and himself mad. Any ideas?

I know what you mean. NEW
by: John

Our eight month old male Springer, Jerry, will spend hours darting at imaginary things. He 'sees things' in the carpet, on the ceiling, floating in the air, etc. He particularly likes chasing the reflection from his medallion. He's a total idiot BUT, he's so cute and affectionate. And after all, I think we're all a bit weird; I know I am.

Springer seeing things that are not there
by: Anonymous

He may be having a seizure. I have an epileptic ESS. Her first "seizure" was what they call "fly biting" where she would walk around and bite at the air as if she was chasing a fly. Several days later, she had her first grand mal seizure. She was only 4 months old. She is now 4 1/2 years old and after many tries of different drugs, her seizure activity is well controlled. If he continues to exhibit this behavior, I would have him evaluated by a neurologist. Hope this info helps.

"lights and shadows" show
by: Anonymous

I am currently fostering a female that is around 2 years old that does the "lights and shadow" shows as well. She was prescribed prozac prior to coming here and still had the issue. I did some research and am using a small amount of an herb called valerian that has really calmed those issues. She still takes the prozac, I am not sure exactly if that's for the ocd or not though, but the valerian has made her more content.
