Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! Please give me a few moments to type my response and I will be right back!
I am so sorry to hear your dog had this experience. The primary concern would be petite mal or minor seizures or muscle fasciculations in the neck/ headIf it does happen again then if you can videotape the incident it will help differentiate the two. For now I would advise keeping her quiet with minimal stimulation to light, sound, touch and hopefully this will allow the risk for relapse to be reducedI would strongly advise an exam if it does recur or if she is not responsive during an episode but with tics or petite mal seizures often they do not lose consciousness nor responsiveness to youYou can try warm compresses on the neck to help reduce muscle fasciculations but only for short periods of time to reduce stimulation in any wayI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
