Sadie had another Seizure

Sunday I was sitting on the couch in the living room watching TV. My dog Sadie was on the floor at the end of the couch by the wall. We had a long two days up to my mothers from the birthday party and spending the night. I didn't think anything of it when she was laying on the floor and not on the couch next to me like she always does. I kept looking at her because she didn't seem to be herself. I though it was that she was overwhelmed with everything from the day before. When I looked down at her the 2nd time I saw that her face didn't look right, she was starting to have a seizure. This will be the 3rd one she has had since we've got her Christmas of 06. The other two were 3-14-07 and 12-10-07. We don't know if that is one for the reasons the people got rid of her or not. We have had her looked at by our Vet. They said their is really nothing you can do. If she was having them more often there are pills. Where this happens about two times a year they said she would be fine. I hate to see her like that. If she tries to walk she falls down. I just lay on the floor with her and hold her and tell her everything will be all right. It really hurts my heart to see her face so scared and their is nothing I can do for her. This seizure lasted for 10 minutes. The 1st on was 30 seconds, and the 2nd one was 5 minutes. They seem to be getting longer. She seems to be OK now. I'm keeping an eye on her.

That sounds like a scary incident. I'm surprised the vet said there is nothing they can do. I'm sure it is very scary for you. I hope she feels better.

Ahh I`m so sorry to hear Sadie is having seizures :(
My sisters beagle has them and takes medication for them( I think phenobarbitol?). They`ve been pretty much under control from the meds. I hope this will be her last one for a while and she won`t require any treatment.
Sending her {{{big hugs}}
