There’s nothing more terrible than a puppy that suffered a seizure. Owners may panic when seeing their dog seizures and that might scare them. There are no home remedies for that yet. But you can depend on the dog first aid tips to save them from seizure.
Protect Your Dog
Make sure your animal is out of danger in case the dog is having a seizure. Make sure the dog is away from stairs, furniture and sharp objects.
Once the puppy has overcome the attack, comfort him by speaking in a calm voice and petting him. Massage some Rescue Remedy in the dog’s fur to help relax. Seizure can cause low glucose content and lower glucose levels can trigger a seizure.
Assume that your puppy is uncontrollable during an attack. Don’t try to help your dog from swallowing their tongue during seizure because this can cause a severe bite. Dogs do not swallow their tongue. This exercise is not necessary.
Seizure increases the dog’s fever. It is useful to sponge your dog- if it is safe – with a little hot water on the tummy, armpits and head to lower the temperature.
If the condition continues, it is recommended that you take them to the nearest vet or hospital so that you can prevent bad things from happening. The vet will immediately take necessary actions to prevent the illness.
Few owners are not aware that dogs also respond to the application of pressure. The acupressure point is GV26 when the dog is in a seizure. Perform this for a one minute will put the seizure into a halt.
Monitor Their Condition
Watch your puppy carefully after seizure. Check their gums. If the gum looks pale, consult with vet. If another seizure occurs and lasts for 5 minutes, consult your vet again.
