How do you help your dog during a seizure?
If your dog has cluster seizures, one right after another, it is
dangerous. Ask your vet to get a rx like Phenobarbital and/or
Potassium Bromide to control. My vet prescribed a rectal Valium for
us to take home to help pull him out of his seizures, and that is
First Stay Calm, try to make sure the dog doesn't run into anything
or knock anything over on himself. if he is near anything he may
harm himself on, such as water, (pool) or stairs, pull him gently
by a rear leg to a safe spot. It is VERY important that you keep
your hands away from the dogs mouth.The seizure will cause his jaws
to clinch out of his control & you can be badly hurt !!!! The
seizure should pass in a few min.s then contact your Vet. ASAP!
Contact your vet immediately! If you have to go to the office,
try keeping his head elevated and prevent his tongue from being
swallowed. This is why so many dogs die from this. They get choked
on there tongue. Ironic, right?
