Jeff Madison, Wisconsin 7/4/2013 7:31:18 AM My 11 year old German Shorthaired Pointer just had his first seizure (that i know of) today as we entered the dog park. I thought at first that he had injured his hind leg/hip as he was flailing it in the air and that maybe he had gone into shock from pain. Then it became pretty clear he was having a seizure. Scariest, most helpless feeling I've had with him. Especially happening on the 4th of July with the vet's office closed. Called the emergency clinic and described the symptoms and they advised to just keep an eye on him and watch for any 2nd seizures and to bring him in if he has more than 2 more within 24 hours.
