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.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How many seizures has she had in the past 2 days?

Any access to toxins, drugs or dog unfriendly plants?

Any circling, head tilting, staring into corners, or changes in her behavior?

Is she on any treatment? Any known health issues?
