    45 seconds and a couple of minutes is a worry, especially the last one, that's a very long one. The full on shaking is a grand mal seizure, often dogs will lose control of their bladders and bowels while it happens.

    One thing I discovered is that dogs can have petit mal seizures, where they don't shake but will kind of "zone out", like not being aware of anything around them. My vet at the time told me of one dog that used to suddenly just lift his front leg up while he zoned out, never had the full on seizure. I'd be watching Bella for signs of petit mal too.
    I think I know what you mean by zoning out. Oopa does this when she has a temp. Will look out for it. yes the 2nd one went on for eons

    Yep - theyre ace - I bought them coffee as a thank you for looking after me last time I was there. All the vets and nurses are ace - it is always such a good environment even when things are bad - if that makes sense. A lot of human doctors could learn from the way these guys act
