it is late here so please just email your information to me. She has never had a seizure or any problems prior. She was given small dose of valium about an hour before seizure.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Now you didn't actually ask a question, therefore can you give us an idea of what type of information you are looking for?

When she did have this seizure, did she paddle her legs, lose control of her bowels/bladder, or just faint?

Why was she treated with valium before the seizure? How much? How much does she weigh?
