    I would imagine that someone has epilepsy. If not, there wouldn't be a name for the condition.

    No joke I had a 125 lb Rott that would get them

    Felt bad for the poor guy. Had him on phenobarb for them and it helped but didnt cure it.

    I went to middle school with an epileptic kid whose last name was Fitzgerald. His nickname was "Fitz" It was frightening to watch him have a seizure.

    My mom fainted on a hot summer day back in the 80's,
    hit her head and developed epilepsy.

    Medication keeps her seizures in check, but once in a
    while she'll have this blank stare for a few seconds.

    My Keeshond is on Phenobarb too.

    My Vet's not sure if he's got Epilepsy or just a seizure disorder.

    The only time he starts to get shaky is when I take him to the Vet.

    His last 5 appointments were done in the parking lot. As soon as my Dog walks through the front door he starts foaming - which is his precursor to a seizure.

    I'm thankful that Phenobarb works great for him. He's only had 2 grand mal seizures and both happened before he got on the drug. He hasn't had one since - about 2 years ago. Just the foaming at the Vet.

    I'm sorry that you had to go through that. There's nothing easy about watching a loved one go through that.

    Not something to Kid about...It's not Fun or Funny.
    Children are susceptible to getting them.
    Many/most are fortunate to outgrow them.

    Seizure(activity) at night/sleep is VERY common.
    Easy to tell activity (someone observing)by hand/foot/arm twitch.

    Knew an irresponsible guy years ago who had it.. insisted that he could control himself and continued to drive with his young daughter in the car. One time with her, he seized up, crashed the car into a tree in an empty lot after jumping the curb.... fortunately no serious injuries.. but to the best of my knowledge that's the last time he drove with any passengers.
