I need a bit of advice. My father's 6yr old lab had a full on seizure yesterday. Perfectly healthy dog until now; first time ever. It was a full on, on its side with paws paddling in air seizure. It immediately empties its bowels, froths at the mouth and paces up and down relentlessly afterwards.
He took it immediately to the vets who basically did an initial physical and told him to return if it happened again. I would have expected blood taken for tests, etc but I'm.not a vet.
The dog had a fit at lunchtime today and another about 11pm tonight. My father phoned the vets after the lunchtime fit but the vet stated they were now closed and he'd have to wait until Saturday morning before bringing the dog in.
I know there could be many reasons for the seizures nor do I expect an identifiable reason, without testing. However, is there anything he could do to minimise triggers / causes for the seizures; minimise the occurrences? Just till he gets a chance to see a vet.
