hi Thank you for requesting me.

When did this start?

What was going on at the time if you remember?

Does she have any history of seizures?

Could something have frightened or hurt her?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
started today. normally morning wake up. no seizures... she is shaking like she is cold. do not think something could have frightened her.
Expert:  Sally G. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. Shaking can mean pain, but the fact that she is very clingy also suggests fear.

Expert:  Sally G. replied 1 year ago.

Is she walking okay how about running ?

Is she eating and drinking normally?

Will she take a treat from you?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
okay thank you.
Expert:  Sally G. replied 1 year ago.

I would keep an eye on her for now and take note of anything else abnormal

Expert:  Sally G. replied 1 year ago.

If other symptoms arise but are not life threatening make a regular vet appt.

I am also going to direct you to a site that will tell you how to take vital signs of a dog so you know what to look for in an emergency

Expert:  Sally G. replied 1 year ago.

4 to 5 years old is about the time seizure activity starts if it is going to happen as this breed is prone to epilepsy
