To make a long story short, my sweet little doggy has had 2 seizures in the past 3 weeks, and he had one of them this morning. About 3 weeks ago, he was pulling his blanky into the laundry room (he loves to do that for some reason so I leave the door open for him), and all of a sudden I heard a strange thump so I ran in there to check on him. I found him seizing on the floor, and I became frantic because he's my baby. He seized for about a minute, and it was less than 5 minutes afterward when he returned to his normal, playful self, as if nothing had happened. I honestly thought that he hit his head so I cuddled him and have watched him very closely, just in case. I feel like a horrible person now, but at the time I honestly thought it was just a one time freak occurrence because he's about 2 years old and has never had problems in the past. I keep him updated on all of his shots and vet visits, he goes to the groomers regularly, and he's basically treated like a baby, going with me wherever I go if it's feasible.
This morning, he was acting completely normal, and had just taken a drink of water (I was standing right near him in the kitchen), when all of a sudden he walked maybe 4 steps and literally dropped on the floor and started seizing again. My hands are literally shaking as I type this, because I'm filled with worry for him, plus I don't want him to suffer at all. He seized for about a minute, was shaky for a couple of minutes after that, then he literally started jumping around like nothing had happened at all, and he wanted to play. I took that as a good sign, but I'm still petrified. I called the vet's office, and told them all of this. I assured them that he hadn't gotten into anything that could harm them, and I think he might be epileptic. I assumed they would take this as seriously as I do and want to see him today, but they're not treating this like an emergency. WTF??!! This is my dog we're talking about, and I really want him to be seen by a vet today, and get whatever tests done that he needs so I can help him. Am I overreacting, or should I just call another vet and see if I can take him in today? Like I said, I think this is a major issue that needs to be addressed asap. Maybe I'm just a worry wort, but it is my responsibility to take care of him, and I don't want him to suffer anymore than he has to. Any suggestions? Thanks so much, everyone.
