I've never been so scared in my life! I've seen a dog have a seizure but never when I was by myself. I had a dog on the table that I was roughing in and I heard a bang on the kennel door in the back so I took the dog I was grooming off my table and saw the golden shaking in his kennel so I immediately grabbed a cold rag and a washcloth. He had pee'd everywhere and kept opening and closing his mouth. It looked like he was going to bite his tongue off so I put a washcloth where he could only bite on that instead of his tongue. I was the only person in the shop and had customers coming in. Luckily it only lasted for a few minutes and I was able to call the owner who THEN tells me the dog has a history of seizures. We make them fill out information on the dog IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO KNOW! Apparently the dog has one at least twice a month! I specifically asked for any known health problems and they said nothing but old age, so I was annoyed and scared.
He tipped me $40 though for calling and taking care of his dog. Make sure you tell your groomers about anything that might happen to the dog while in their care. I about had a heart attack this morning!
He's okay though, I kept him out in the salon with me until his owner arrived and let him lie down on a cool surface with a fan on him. He seemed to be panting quite heavily.
