Q. My lab/ retriever mix just had a seizure, had one about 3 years ago. Is there anything I should do or worry about. After the seizure she seems fine.

Answered By

A. I would monitor and if has any more then see your vet. The vet won't treat them unless they start to happen regularly as she may not have another one ever or for a long time as you know. The length of the seizure is also important if they last for a long time then more likely to treat. There is no way of knowing what is causing them without expensive tests like ct or mri.
