Is this a seizure?

Biscuit had another "seizure" tonight around 7 pm EST. It's not exactly a seizure in the sense of falling over shaking and she doesn't have the pre-seizure nervousness or after seizure upset. I don't know what to call it. You may remember she had an incident about two months ago at the dog park.

I was sitting in the kitchen waiting for dinner to arrive, when suddenly I noticed Biscuit pooping on the floor next to me! Now if this were Jovi, I wouldn't be worried () but Biscuit just doesn't do this. It was weird how she was going to - not pushing it out, rather it was just happening. The minute it stopped, she stumbled a couple steps to Dylan's dog bed and literally fell over onto her side. She was stiff and pretty much non-responsive. We waived our hands in front of her open eyes, but it was like she couldn't see us. It was about 10 minutes before she started to come around and respond to our voices.

It took another 20 minutes before she would stand, but then she wouldn't walk or move. Chris held her to him for a while because she felt rather cold. She seemed very weak and tired. She's not in any obvious pain, there's no swelling any where, no drooling this time. Her pulse is okay, her gums were pale, but the colour is better now and when you press on them, the blood comes back quickly. She did vomit about 10 or 15 minutes ago - brought up a lot of food. I had a cover over her since she was cool, but she's just kicked that off, gotten up and moved,which is good.

The only reason I didn't rush her to the vet is because something similar happened before, she's had extensive phsycial tests and bloodwork and is in excellent health, and because I know she hasn't ingested anything (she has been in my sight since I let her out - about an hour before this happened).

Tomorrow morning I am calling her vet and talking to her about this. We're wondering if there is some external stimulus that is causing a weird seizure - if that is what this is.

For now, she's sleepy, but otherwise okay.
