I am sorry to hear about your friend's dog. Thank you for helping them.

Seizures in older dogs can be from low blood sugar, so trying to get liquids and food into Mandi might help. Is she eating and drinking? Your friend can try rubbing some Karo syrup or honey onto Mandi's gums directly.

Sadly, another cause of seizures in older dogs is a brain tumor. Anti seizure medication might help, but you have to get it from a veterinarian.

Ask your friend to lift Mandi's lip and check her gums; are they pink or pale? Another cause of seizure in older dogs is heart disease, casing poor circulation and not enough oxygen to the brain.
