Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Any shaking or vomiting? 2) Did she lose consciousness during this time? 3) Was she able to stand but not move or was she unable to stand entirely (legs didn't work)? 4) How is she doing now? 5) Is this the first episode you've seen like this? 6) Is she on any medications?
