Q. Dog woke up this morning put outside 2 minutes later heard her yelp ran outside and she was having a seizure. She's drolling and won't move

Answered By

A. If the seizure was not longer than 4-5 min and she has fully recovered now then there is no need to panic. You should book her for an appointment with your vet. She will need blood test and ideally urine analysis. She may be epileptic but other causes of seizure (like drop in blood sugar) should be ruled out too.
