If it was a seizure then there is no time to expect this to come back. You may not see this again for days, weeks, or months. A general cut off is that seizures that occur more than once per month or more than 3 times per year should be treated with medication. There is no way to prevent them other than medication and avoiding high levels of stress/anxiety. Aspirin does not cause problems for treatment of seizures, so there was no problem there. She will need to be monitored until the morning. If possible, you may want to put a bell on her collar to alert you in case she has a seizure. There is nothing you can do during a seizure other than keeping her on her side and making sure her head is away from hitting any objects. It sounds like this was not a classic tonic-clonic seizure we observe with the jerking motions, so she may not be at risk of hurting herself.
