Good afternoon, and thank you for your question.

I'm very sorry to hear about your dog's current condition. I must start out by saying that her condition sounds very serious. I have a few questions to ask you, however, in order to help you further.

1): How long has your dog been having seizures?

2): Is he currently on any medications for the seizures, or any other medical condition?

3): Are either one of his eyelids closed involuntarily?

4): Is he able to stand if you help him up, and if so, can he walk in a straight line?

Many thsnk, and I"m looking forward to hearing from you.

-Dan C., DVM
