Please help! IMPORTANT!

I have a dog, he is a beagle dashhound mix, and 3 years old.
He has had seizures well what i think are seizures. He would kind of get weak and fall over and start trembling. He still seem concious but i am not sure. I called the vet and told her he had a seizure and she dodn't seem surprized or concered.
Then he had one a couple days ago. He was laying in my bed and we were about to go to sleep He was fine. Then He started crawling towards me. He fell and then tryed getting to me again. He then started shaking so i picked him up and tryed to comfort him. That lasted about 10 min. Then he stopped. After a few min.I gently put him on the gound to see if he could walk. He just kind of sat down and then after about a min or so her vomited. After that he was fine, slow and coutious but fine.
I am bringing him to the vet next week for his regular check-up and I will mention it.
I was just want to here your comments about if you have any experience with this or what you think I should do or just what to add.
And if it really was a seizure.......
Thanks :)

I think he should be seen by a vet sooner, this sounds serious.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Okay, my old german shepherd did that. She was born with it. We talked to out vet and they put her on some pills to go with her dog food, i don't remmember the name for them but your vet should know. Sadly my german shepherd crossed so we have to give her to a new home and the vet said this sezeur thing is never going to go away so ask your vet if it is possible to heal. But mine dog didn't. Yes, what your told us is a siezuer. I am sorry to say. But also when this happens, MAKE SURE YOU GIVE HIM WATER RIGHT AFTER IT IS FINNISHED!!! They can get dehyderated and that will only make it worse. I wish you guys tons of luck!

My dog had two seizures within a hour last month. They lasted about 2 minutes or so the last one he pooped(normal). I called the vet right away and they said 2 min. seizure isnt that bad!! They did blood work and put him on meds and said it sometimes has to do with the full moon. I said "What"!! So we are waiting to see what happens in Feburary. Oh and he hasn't had a siezure since.

I would get him to the vet. It might be something else, like an accidental poisoning from eating a houseplant or licking wormer off the ground, or even from his own heartworm meds.

oh ok. i am trying to get him in as soon as possible.
and he is on a Heartworm med. and he just got it before the 2nd seizure but the first one was back in nov. idk if it was after he got his nov. heartworm or what. if the vet still says theres nothing in his blood work or anything i will pay more attention after i give him that med.
but he has been on that heartworm all his life and this just started so i don't know

Maybe you just started noticing it now but its been happening more?
I have a friend whose dog has seizures and whenever it starts they give her vanilla ice cream. It actually works for her and they got the idea from their vet. Maybe you can try that?

I agree that the vet needs to see this lil guy ASAP. How old is this dog?

It may be seizures-but, the second time sounds different to me. Sounds sort of like my guy was when he had back issues, and....given the breed you have-since Doxies are prone to back issues....that would be my guess. When mine had the back issues-they recommended rest-no jumping on you, furniture, etc, and keep steps to a minimum. WHen you pick him up make sure you support him well. ALl this will not hurt him if it is seizures, but may help if it is his back. Good luck and let us know.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
