Customer Question

My dog doesn't seem to wake up - but his eyes are open and he jerks to noise or just seems to jerk - similar to a seizure but not constant. He was sleeping and I had to move him and this happened. He's now just laying on the bed but if I pick him up he starts jerking again
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: We found this dog about a month ago - we call him buddy - we've been searching for his owner for a month. He's a yorkie - prob mixed with shitzu Now I'm thinking he may have been dropped in this neighborhood due to this condition. We've done EVERYTHING possible to find the owner.
JA: How old is Buddy?
Customer: We are guessing 1-2 years
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Buddy?
Customer: Super playful - this is the first time an issue has come up
