Hi this is Dr. Dani, I'm a small animal veterinarian and I'm happy to help with Herc. How is he doing now? Is he awake and alert? Is it like a whole body jerk or temor? What was happening just before this occurred? Any vomiting or other problems? Please give me any additional information you have and I'll be happy to offer some suggestions.
