My chihuhua just had a seizure. This is her second one that we know of.. the first one was about six months ago. She may of had one when we weren't home though.. anyways not sure what we should do? She is about five years old and has been on the same food since she was a puppy. My mom cooks up chicken and rice to mix in the dry food. Anyone have any advice?

You need to make and keep a log of her siezures... Day, time, and how long they lasted. I would also go ahead and get her to the vet as soon as you can for a full work-up though. I had lost a very good dog to seizures several years ago. The vet at the time had given him phenobarbitol, which worked for a while. When it stopped working, I had two options: either have brain surgery on him (which was not guaranteed); or have him put down. It broke my heart, but I didn't want him suffering anymore.

I'm sure that the veterinary field is much more advanced now than it was back then. Best of luck and I'll keep you and your pup in my prayers.

Don't lose hope. For sure, there are available medication to prevent seizure from recurring. Just would like to share also that if your pet is having a seizure, the important thing to do is you keep them calm and comfortable and never to try to reach.
