Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
The DES chew and the Proin would not have caused the seizure. It does sound like a seizure, and the pacing is called a post-ictal stage. It can last from 30mins to 12 hours after a seizure. There is no treatment necessary for this one seizure. If she has 3 seizures within a 24 hour period, then she will need to be seen by a veterinarian to give medication and observation. I would get in to see your vet tomorrow to have blood work run and consider taking some x-rays to look for the cause of this seizure episode. Unfortunately, the majority of these episodes at this age are caused by cancer. I am so sorry you are having to go though this with Ellie... please let me know if you have further questions.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Best of luck.
You are most welcome!
