Petit Mal
Characterized by tremors, drooling, spontaneous urination and staring or upward eye movement. Although a “mild” seizure, the effects may be as serious as the other types.
Grand Mal
The more violent seizure, marked by convulsions, foaming at the mouth, uncontrollable urination and defecation, rapid paw and jaw movements and loss of consciousness. This seizure may last 1-3 minutes, during which the dog may scream as if in pain.
Status Epilepticus
An elongated seizure or multiple seizures lasting 5-10 minutes or more. This may be life threatening. Be certain that the area is clear of anything that may hurt the dog, and do not put anything in its mouth, including your hands!
Cluster Seizures
Multiple but not continuous seizures of consistent or varying severity during a 24-hour period.
