Q. Hello, my chihuahua has 7 seizures a month. When we took her to her vet he gave her medicine and the first day she took it she had 15 seizures, why?

A. First of all 15 seizures a day is extremely bad. If she isn't young, she could have a brain tumor, in this case anti seizure drugs might not help. Otherwise bear in mind that seizure meds don't always start working immediately it can take up to 2 weeks to start working properly. In the meantime your dog needs to receive acute anti seizure treatment, usually in form of intravenous or rectal valium.
