Seizure 5 days ago, odd behaviour the last 2 days


My husband and I have a 13 week old Alaskan Malamute puppy. Last Tuesday he had a seizure. We were told by the vet it was a "severe" seizure and not typical of a first time seizure in dogs. She kept him for the day and monitored him to see if he was going to have another, he did not. She sent him home with a catheter in his leg and a syringe of valium and a syringe of saline and said if he had another over the next 2-3 days to administer it and bring him back. Prior to the seizure he got terrified and just started running, then seized. He did not have another one that we were aware of. Over the last couple of days he has been acting very odd. He will get very scared, start looking around nervously and then just run to a corner. He will bite at his tail, growl, shake his head and seems as though he is seeing things that we are not. It lasts anywhere from 10 minutes to about 30 minutes. He yelps like he is in pain but once he comes out of whatever it is, he seems to be fine until the next episode. One thing that may be worth mentioning is he may have been stung by a wasp earlier today. He freaked out and started shaking his head all over and whining when it landed on him. A couple of minutes later he did what I mentioned above then was fine until tonight, when he went through the same thing, but this time lasted about 30 minutes. Now he is sleeping in the corner. Hopefully you may know what he is going through and whether or not we should take him to the animal hospital tonight.

Thank you,
