Contact your regular animal hospital ASAP and be careful handling your dog
- If your regular veterinary hospital is open, contact them now. If they are closed, it is probably safe to wait until morning.
- Monitor your dog closely for any new symptoms or changes in behavior. If they have another seizure within 24 hours or one that lasts more than 5 minutes, you should contact an emergency veterinary hospital.
- Be careful when a dog is having a seizure. Allow them to come out of it before handling, as a seizing dog may bite.
- If your dog vomits while having a seizure, carefully pick up their hind end and tilt them forward so they don’t accidentally aspirate the vomit.
