So glad to hear he's doing OK now. Hopefully that was his first and last seizure. Stay healthy, Spencer![/b]
One siezure is not atypical in a life time.
The epiletic dog I had the post ictal phase lasted 24 hours and was marked not by manic activity by rather a lack of any. Neither is a typical each dog usually has there own pattern. I think the first siezure is hardest on the dog and owner because they don't understand what is happening. You may want to discuss with your vet a perscription for (valium) to be adminstered rectally in the case of an emergency. custer or status sizure (siezure lasting 10 minute or more) can kill. Just because the dog never had one before does not mean it won't
