Customer Question

Hi---we just awoke to our 11 year old Golden Retriever seemingly having a seizure. He seemed disoriented and when he finally lifted his head up he bit my hand which he has never done. He seems confused and definitely not like the dog we know. $8: breathing isn't labored anymore but probably 25 minutes-30 have passed
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the golden retriever's name?
Customer: Stokley
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Stokley?
Customer: No

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 situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Any access to toxins, harmful plants, or drugs/meds?

Has he ever had a seizure before?

How is he now?
