This morning as I was getting ready for church, I came into the family room and saw Ginny laying on the floor and twitching. I walked over to her and saw that she was just trembling all over. Still holding her head up and looking at me, but she was just sort of trembling all over. I picked her up and moved her over to her doggy bed to try to make her more comfortable and sat next to her just petting her and reassuring her. She just kept twitching for a while and then it got a little worse, and she started to sort of stick her tongue out sort of involuntarily and gulping involuntarily too. It was never what I would consider a "grand mal" sort of seizure. She stayed completely conscious, her eyes didn't roll back and she didn't seem to have any breathing problems or anything. All in all, it lasted about 3 minutes. As soon as her episode passed, she threw up on her doggy bed. I tried to call my dad to see if he could watch her while I was at church (I have to go to church because I work there), but he wasn't able to, so I had to leave her at home by herself. I was so worried about her while I was at church, but when I got home she was just fine. One of the women I know at church told me that maybe it could be a sign of diabetes. I just don't know. I've never seen her do anything like this before. She's only 1 and a half. I plan to go take her to the vet on Monday or Tuesday, and have them do some testing.

Has anyone else had their corgi have a seizure? Does this sound like it could be a seizure?

Thanks everyone. She seems to be feeling fine now. I've just kept a close eye on her today. Will make a vet appointment for sometime this week, just to see what they want to do. I guess I worry that maybe this happens when I'm not home, and this is just the first time I've ever seen it.

If it happens again, it might be helpful to take a video of the episode so that your vet can see exactly what's happening.

I hope you feel better and that it's nothing serious!

Poor Ginny. I don't know if I'd put her on medication right now, but if it starts to happen very frequently and she seems to be in pain I would think about getting her something. Definitely bring her to the vet to see what's going on though. Feel better Ginny!

Our Standard Poodle had epilepsy and it sounds a little like that. He lived to 18 and we never put him on medication because it did not occur that often. I don't think it bothered him at all. Hopefully she will be fine and it won't be too serious. Good luck.
