Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is Dr. Peter I am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Can you describe what you saw during the fit?
2- How long did it last?
3- Was she stung by a wasp/bee at the time of the fit?
4- When you say she is carrying milk do you mean she is lactating? If so, is she pregnant or had puppies?
