I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. It sounds as if your Husky suffered a complex partial seizure (previously called petit mal). May I have an update on your Husky, please? These seizures are defined as focal or asymmetric sensory or motor abnormalities of any part of the body. They're often associated with autonomic signs (salivation, drooling). The modifier "complex" implies a change in mentation (mental status) and/or behavioral abnormalities.
