Default Does this sound like a seizure??

I need an answer quick, my sister just sent me a text saying:

"Do you have any idea what could be wrong with Maggie?? She's like shaking pretty badly and then there will be like a small convulsion and she will barely move anywhere or eat."

I told her to call the emergency vet because I am an hour away and I don't know what to do. What does this sound like?

It could be, but even if it's not, if it's something that continues I would probably bring her in somewhere tonight.

A short lasting seizure that the animal recovers from easily, I don't really consider something that needs an emergency visit - that's one where I'd just call my normal vet in the AM and get an appointment (at least, this is what I tell other people to do - if it were my own dog I'd probably freak and just go the ER route).

Certainly if it's something ongoing, I'd head in.
