For the second time in 2 weeks my lab has gone into a slight seizure. Hoping someone here can shed some light as to what my be causing this. I do have an appointment tomorrow for a kennel caugh booster so I can ask the vet. My lab is 13 months old, approx 110 lbs. The two times this has happened it's been after he has jumped down from the bed. He'll get very disoriented, lays down and puts both front paws up by his ears and shakes slightly for about 3 minutes. He seems ok after about 5 minutes. I've been putting ear drops in his ears the past couple of weeks thinking he may have an ear infection but his ears look and smell good. Any thoughts on what may be wrong with my boy? Thanks...

I am so glad that you have a vet appointment tomorrow. There could be several reasons that he is having the seizures. Gladly there is medication to take care of it. Please keep us informed on what the Vet says.

I have heard about some labs having seizures. I do know the meds are only $15-20 per month.. really cheap.. so it's not a big deal and as long as they get their meds everyday.. they won't have any seizures anymore.. this is all I know.. I am not sure why they have them.. probably similiar reasons like seizures in people.. I would guess.. Good luck and please let us know how you make out at the vet. The more we know.. the more we are educated and understand possible problems that could crop up for our dogs as well in the future. Best Wishes, Heather
