My dog is having seizures about every three hours since last

Customer Question

My dog is having seizures about every three hours since last night. My local vet tells me 'I know it's scary but I'll see you on Monday'. I'm just not sure what I should be doing?

I should ad- he had a Siezure about a month an a half ago, full gran mall. Did full blood work up, nothing wrong. Now, since 11pm April 23rd, he is having a Siezure every 3 to 4 hours.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help. I would assume that Kevin's vet isn't alarmed because often when a dog has a seizure, by the time they come to see us they are clinically normal. That said, if Kevin is having a seizure every 3 hours, then I would strongly advise ringing your vet back since that needs treating (even if they just send home Valium for you to stop the seizures).As well, if he is having them this frequently, has no history of toxins/head trauma, or liver issues (what the bloods checked for); then his seizures are likely due to epilepsy. And I would note that we do tend to treat epileptics if they have more than 1 seizure every 6 months. So, not only does he need these current continuous seizures treated but he will also need to be started on treatment to prevent his risk of having them in the first place.Please take care,Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Afterwards, I would be grateful if you would rate my service by clicking on the "Rate my Expert' button at the top of the page as this is the only way I am credited for helping you.
