Was this the first ever episode?
How long ago did it happen?
How is he acting now?
Yesis the firs episode. Happened about rwenty minutes ago. He is acting like he needs to vomit. Tried giving him warm milk, he refused to drink
Regarding seizures, possible causes include:- Toxins- Infectious/inflammatory causes- Metabolic disease- Endocrine disease- Cancer- Epilepsy.Another way I tend to think about seizures is by their age:In this case, although there is not a specific test for it - your dog fits the category of likely idiopathic epilepsy based on the age when the first seizure happened.LINK HEREFor cases such as this, (and what is most commonly recommended) we typically recommend a general examination and starting with basic testing such as routine bloodwork.It is quite possible there will never be another seizure.Some dogs can seizure once and then never again.BUT - - if the seizures continue - and worsen - medical therapy, including anti-convulsant medication is recommended.Phenobarbital (LINK HERE) is the most common medication although there are other drugs such as keppra (LINK HERE) and potassium bromide (LINK HERE) which can be considered.
