Title What should I do if my dog has a seizure? Title
Bullet
Once your dog is having a seizure, there are actions you can take to protect yourself and your dog from harm.
Bullet
Dogs do not seem to swallow their tongues during a seizure, so there is no need to put your hand near your dog’s mouth and risk being accidentally bitten.
Bullet
Where possible, move objects, people and other pets out of the way and do not move or handle your dog during a seizure unless he/she is likely to damage themselves (e.g. if at the top of the stairs or near a fire. If this is the case, roll him/her onto a blanket and pull clear of harm).
Bullet
Once the seizure is over, keep your dog in a quietened room to fully recover. Your dog may be confused and disorientated after a seizure, so avoid approaching him/her until he/she is ready to come to you. Ensure that food and water are available as your dog may also be hungry and thirsty after a seizure.
Bullet
It is a good idea to time and record details of the seizure, as this will help your veterinary surgeon to establish the best course of treatment for your dog. lf the seizure is lasting longer than normal, for more than 10 minutes or if seizures are occurring more often than once per hour, you should contact your veterinary surgeon immediately.
