After seeing the video of Tanner I know now that my dog is having a grand mal seizure. It is quick but she looses awareness.

I don't understand why anyone would make a rude comment. I have a dog that gets an occasional seizure. I hold her and pet her during the attacks. The real problem is when you haven't seen her for awhile because she may be in another room or outside when the seizure occurs.
