Seizures?

I am wondering if it is possible for my dog to have calm seizures? She was outside playing ball with my hubby and he said she walked in a circle and then sat down as though her backside couldn't hold her . As if she were lightheaded or something. She hasn't had any convulsions that I am aware of.

It is possible for a dog to have petit mal seizures just as people can--so mild as to be nearly unnoticeable. Sometimes they remain mild; sometimes they escalate in severity with age.

It's also possible that she might have hurt her back during play--we have a dog with spondyllosis that often turns and sits if she's 'stung' her back.

In either case, if she continues to show the odd behavior, a trip to the vet is probably in order.

I hope it was just a flukey thing and she's fine. :fingerscr Please let us know how she does.

And welcome to the board, ILoveDogs! :D
