Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.It isn't unusual for a male dog who isn't castrated to hump and sometimes they get carried away. The penis can stay erect for some time after ejaculated. As long as the penis is now back to normal, this wouldn't concern me.Has he seen a vet regarding the seizures and is he on any medicine for them?

Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I shall certainly try.

Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.

His signs of frequent seizures and a lack of appetite are a concern and could have several causes including liver disease, kidney disease or a brain tumour.

A vet visit is needed to examine him and they may run some tests such as a blood test. Treatment will depend on what is going on. He may well benefit from daily anti seizure medicine.
