Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I am reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.
First: what is her name, what breed ?
When did this start (hours, days)?
Did she look dazed and confused when this started?
Did you see her have a seizure?
She may have had a petit mal seizure which dose not have the thrashing. Or she may have had an atonic seizure where is no trashing and the animal may lose consciousness.
What you should do is leave her alone until she recovers. Stimulus like you holding her may prolong the seizure.
You should keep a journal of all these episodes: lenght of time (from beginning to acting normal), what she was doing just prior to episode, and date.
You may notice a pattern developing.
If these episodes happen regularly or more than once monthly she should be put on a trial of seizure medication to see if it stops the episodes.
Is she back to normal now?
Seizures are abnormal brain activity. Usually you may see her get "spacey".
This might be followed by a period of confusion.
Or she might fall down and begin thrashing while laying on her side. During this time don't touch her as it may become worse. But make sure she cannot hurt herself falling down stairs or bumping into furniture.
Is she any better than an hour ago? Sometimes it takes several hours to become normal again.
What was she doing the last time and how long did it last?
Are you still there?
Any better than an hour ago?
You seem to be gone.
Keep track of how long it takes her to get back to normal.
Give this info to your vet on Monday. She will probably start her on some seizure medication ( depending on how long ago she had her other one and the severity).
If she has more seizures that are a lot more severe this weekend you may
have to take her to an emergency clinic where she can be given iv anti-seizure medication.
I hope that this has given you some helpful info. There is nothing you can do at home to prevent this from happening.
I will still be checking my emails for an hour.
If you have any more questions i am here to help.
When we are finished kindly rate this service.
How is Kona doing. I hope that she was alright by this morning.
Be sure to take her to your vet in the next few days. She might have to go on seizure medication.
Best to you and Kona.
