Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Lucy. This is interesting. I'm going to say that the key to figuring out what is going on is to have your vet view one of these events (if they continue to happen). Can you video her having one of these episodes? Now with all the smart phones out there, owners can catch things that are happening at home and bring the video to their vet to view. Could it be a seizure? It could. Could it be some syncopal event? That is another possibility. Getting her seen by your vet for a physical exam, some blood work and seeing what you're seeing is going to be best here. If they are seizures, then she could benefit from some anti-seizure medication being started up.
