You may be correct. Seizures first appearing between the age of 6 months and 6 years are usually found to represent idiopathic (unknown cause) epilepsy. We need to differentiate partial seizures (previously called petit mal) from generalized seizures (previously called grand mal). The latter is characterized by loss of consciousness. Did you see the inception of this event? If so, how long did it last? Is Honey currently improving, normalized or, instead, still symptomatic or worsening? Which breed is she, please?
