She had I think a seizure. Vomiting pooped...

Resolved • Response time 16 minutes

24 Aug 2019

She had I think a seizure. Vomiting pooped all over and peed. I have tried the covering bet but the answering service cannot get a hold of him. She also tried to bite us and is now locked in the bathroom.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: Red noon coon hound about one and a half years old weighing 70 lbs
JA: Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the coon's name?
Customer: Matilda
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Matilda?
Customer: Very docile. We adopted her from the Sidney pound in January.

Hello,My name is ***** ***** I am a Vet Tech for over 35 years experience in dogs and other pets.

What you described is a Gran Mal seizure. After the seizure she will be out of it. Not responding is normal that is called the Postictal period meaning after seizure.

At this time there is nothing to do other than getting the dog to a dark quiet room as light and noise can trigger another seizure.

If she starts having anoter seizure Video for the Vet and leave her alone so you do not get bitten. Time the seizure if over three minutes, when it stops get to the ER Vet. If she is quiet just let her sleep.

A seizure is an electrical storm in the brain and can be caused by toxicity,organ issues, Hypoglycemia, a brain tumor, or it can be Idiopathic Epilepsy.

Please reply to discuss this information or gor gurther help. I am sorrt for any delay, Ijust received the question from another area. If yo found my information helpful, please take a moment to rate my service positive.
