She is on heart medication for a murmur (Isoxuprine). I guestimate her age at 32 years; she was locked in a cage for 20 years and had difficulty walking when she first came to me. She is much improved after almost two years, but under stress (even sometimes flapping her wings with great energy), she has seized quite often and this is sometimes accompanied by one foot tightening and freezing in a paralytic way. I massage and stretch her foot and it does pass. I was very interested to read that calcium levels may play a part. I have a great vet, and will speak to him about that ionized calcium test. Being a hen, I would be more suspicious of her having inadequate calcium then too much, but I shall try to find out. If anyone has other ideas to offer, I would be glad to hear.
