Customer Question

My dog is a 6 year old female spayed lab. She is having what looks like a seizure. Her head started shaking, her feet curled up, and when she tried to get down from the couch her feet went out from under her. This lasted for about five minutes. Right now her shaking has stopped but she is drooling uncontrollably. This is the second time I have seen this happen to her. We live in Keller Tx, she is current on all her shots and gets heart worm preventative monthly

Hello! I am Dr Welsh and I am happy to help with your questions today. I have a few additional questions if you will just give me a few minutes to type them for you.

Expert:  Jennifer Welsh replied 11 months ago.

I am sorry that Red experienced this. Hopefully we can get this figured out for you.

how long ago did this happen?
How far apart was this one from the last?
any chance she could have gotten into anything?
any changes recently to food/treats/anything?
when did she receive the last prevention?
how is she doing other then the drooling?

I am sorry to hear about Red. How is she today?

It appears your first expert has left the conversation. Do you still need help with her? This does sound like a seizure. I would be happy to answer your questions if you still need help.
