Hello and thank you for your question. I'm sorry that you have not heard back from anyone sooner. 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) How is Slake doing now?
2) Any additional seizures?
3) How long did the seizure last?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No more seizures, but he appears to be paralyzed now. I think the seizure was so intense he suffered massive brain damage.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Anytime that a dog becomes comatose, this is reason for major concern. If you have not already, I would urge you to take him to your vet's office or local ER. He should not remain comatose at home without the assistance of a veterinary team. If he needs to be put to sleep, this is possible. However, there may still be options for treatment depending on what has caused him to act this way.
