Fortunately, they don't last long. From the time I hear the thump when she falls over to the time the paddling stops it's generally 90 seconds to maybe 2 or 3 minutes.
Mostly there is a puddle, though this morning after a few minutes after the first seizure she defecated in the living room. I tried to get her to go out in the yard prior to this, but I think she was still a little out of it and didn't want to go down the stairs. There was more urine after the second seizure, but no defecation afterwards. She seems fine now. After the first seizure she seemed nervous and clingy, but now she's relaxed. I hope that's it for today.
The vet gave me Phenobarbital and told me to give her a half pill if she has a seizure within a few days after have an initial one, so I did that. Perhaps that is what is making her sleepy. Of course, all of my dogs are hounds, and they're napping most of the time anyhow.
