I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Lil Bit please?

Seizures at her age are usually due to congenital (present at birth) brain defects such as hydrocephalus, the canine distemper virus or Neospora infection.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
She has had three more seizures all she does is sleep in between the seizures
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

This doesn't bode well. She's clustering (more than one seizure within a 24 hour period) and this often presages status epilepticus - the state in which seizure activity doesn't abate until I heavily sedate or anesthetize my patient. She needs the attention of a vet if only to euthanize her as a kindness.

Please continue our conversation if you wish.

She was fine until yesterday morning that is when she started having the seizures for the past 3 weeks she has been a perfectly fine puppy
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Right now she's eating. This all started yesterday. Why all of a sudden.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

There's always a beginning to a disorder. Some are peracute (appear suddenly); some are acute (appear over a few days); and some are acute on chronic (the disorder has been brewing for some time but just recently became apparent).
