this is my first time on dog forums so please be kind. I had a 15 month old female maltese who recently died of ensephilitis. Has anyone experienced this horrible experience. All within an hour our little Sugar was blind, lost all muscle control and had spasms all nite. We took her to the vet the next day and they kept her on medication for the spasms, but there was no cure for this. There are different kinds of this disease. Just want to know if any one out there has had this happen to their dog????
