Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. She could have low calcium levels causing seizure like episodes. I would recommend giving her a Tums twice a day to help supplement this. I would also start feeding her puppy food to up her calorie intake while she is nursing. I would also supplement her nutrition with Nutrical, which is a great supplement for nursing dogs and can be found at most pet stores. I would use 1 tsp every 12 hours. I would also check in her ears and make sure her ears aren't the problem. If they have a lot of debris, it might be more her ears than the fact that she just gave birth. Let me know if you have any other questions.If you could take a minute to give me a positive rating so I can receive credit for this question, I would really appreciate it. Good luck with everything!
