She's having episodes where...

She's having episodes where she starts to pant then she starts shaking, then she has trouble walking. She's hot to the touch, but snaps out of it fast so far. This the 2nd time in last two days.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No wound

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Countess

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Countess?

The episode doesn't seem to be a seizure. I think it's inflammation
