I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you clarify what "thrashes around" implies? It sounds as if you're witnessing partial seizures - focal or asymmetric sensory or motor activity affecting any part of the body. How old is your dog, please? Has this behavior continued since you first posted?
