Hello. I'm sorry for the long wait.

It sounds like you may be seeing partial seizures or visual seizures. Some seizure dogs will have a seizure in part of the brain that causes behavioral abnormalities, but not true motor seizures. You can think of it like a hallucination.

With the signs going on that long, I would advise seeing a vet and giving a dose of Valium to see if that stops this. Otherwise, you'll just have to ride it out and let it resolve on it's own. I would expect it to resolve within 12-24 hours on it's own, so that's why I think the meds would be ideal.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
