Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Now we do have to be concerned to see so many fits in such a short space of time. Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How old is he?

Had he had any fits before these recent ones in the past month?

Was he exposed to any chemicals? Wormers? Drugs?

Has he eaten any wildlife?

Has he had any bloods checked?

Is he normal between fitting episodes?

Any wobbly walking, circling in one direction, head turning or eyes flickering oddly?

Is he on any medication?
