You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

You appear to have witnessed a complex partial seizure. How is Ivan currently doing?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I'm sorry, many spelling mistakes, he is on his bed sleeping, but he pee twice on his bed, I am thinking if I walked him too much today..
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 16 days ago.

Perhaps he overexercised. Most dogs simply refuse to go any farther when they're exhausted, however, and an exhausted dog shouldn't "become so excited and shiver...". Keep a watch on him. If a seizure did arise, another within 24 hours would define clustering which can presage status epilpeticus - the state in which seizure activity doesn't abate until I heavily sedate or anesthetize my patient. He would then need the attention of his vet at your earliest convenience.

Please continue our conversation if you wish.
