I'm sorry to hear your dog is having seizures. Can you answer a few questions for me so I may better assist you with your question?

How old is your dog?
Has your Yorkie been diagnosed with a seizure disorder?
How often does he/she have seizures and how long does a typical seizure last?
Do the seizures occur at any particular time of day or after a meal?
Does he void his bladder or have a bowel movement when the seizures occur?
Does he/she seem normal in between the seizures?
Is he/she on any medications for the seizures?

Thanks and I look forward to hearing back from you.
