    Hi, I'm new to this but hoping for some advice! Last night my dog who is about 11 years old got very excited as usual when my sister visited but then her legs seemed to go from under her. Afterwards she lay on the floor looking a bit stunned by it but then seemed fine, running around & playing as if nothing had happened. It shocked me a bit cos I've not seen this before, shes very active although less inclined to go for walks in the evening. I wasn't too worried until my sister said that my Dad, who often walks her, thought she may have had some sort of seizure the day before when she was with him. She has been absolutely fine since! Should I be worried? She is due to go the vets for normal check up etc in the next few weeks but should I take her sooner? Thanks

    I would certainly get her checked out sooner rather than later, at 11 years old, it always pays not to take chances, especially if this wasnt a one off and there was a possibility a similar thing could have happened he day before.

    Very likely to be a small seizure. My old dog used to get them if ever she got too excited/stressed. Always got up quite soon after, vet never seemed that bothered. She probably had 2-3 a year for her last 5 fives (she was almost 16).

    I would get her checked over sooner rather than later just to be safe
