Witnessing your pup or dog have a seizure can be an alarming and heart-wrenching experience for you. The situation can make you feel utterly helpless and cause you to panic but if you remain calm, the first-aid process will go smoothly. 

The first and most important thing to know is that a seizure in itself is not a disease but a symptom of an underlying disease. So, do not take a seizure lightly. Make sure

to consult a veterinary doctor even if the seizure stops. The veterinarian will conduct thorough diagnostic testing to find out the root cause of the seizures.

Identifying seizures is not always easy. Whole-body convulsions are of course, easy to notice but sometimes, the seizures might be localized to a specific part of the body, like a facial tremor. Sometimes, seizures may present themselves through unusual barking or a sudden rhythmic movement or action in the body. 

Therefore, you need to be alert to any abnormal behavior or symptoms in your dog and address them.
