Dr_Kitty :

hello

Dr_Kitty :

from these symptoms, I urge you to get your dog into a vet asap

Dr_Kitty :

seizures starting at that age can indicate medical issues, tumor, infectious in nervous system, etc

Dr_Kitty :

an older dog that is weak also needs to be checked, as it can indicate a lot of things

Dr_Kitty :

dark urine can be normal if the dog is dehydrated, but if it is very infrequent, there can be a problem with the kidneys

Dr_Kitty :

the dog may need to be put on iv fluids and havce treatment started, depending on what is found

Dr_Kitty :

I would start with a good physical exam, checking gum color, running a cbc/chem to check body function

Dr_Kitty :

I know we have a big time gap, but I would get this dog into your vet ASAP when you wake up in the morning
