Friend, what you are describing is consistent with a seizure. When a dog seizes there could be an underlying medical problem causing the seizure. Possible causes for seizures in dogs are an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism), kidney or liver disease, hypoglycemia, brain tumors, idiopathic (unknown), etc. to name a few causes. One of the most common cause for seizures in young dogs like Bodie is idiopathic epilepsy, meaning we do not know why the brain behaves in such manner but we can control the seizures with medications (phenobarbital or/and potassium bromide).

In this case, I would highly recommend a check up with the family veterinarian for a hands on examination and blood work as an initial screening test to rule out the above-mentioned diseases. If the seizures occur more than once a month medication should be started to stop or prevent the seizures. Observe him today, if he seizes again have him checked by ER veterinarian.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
