|Dogs do not dream that violently!! When I had my little Maltese she would do the same thing and usually in her sleep. It was not seizures, it was Heart Attacks!!
The first time she did that, I had to grab onto her and hold her tight
( and lovingly) because she was thrashing all over the place.
I ran her up to the emergency clinic immediately, and found out that she just had a heart attack and not a seizure! Apparently, her regular vet never detected that she had a very bad heart murmur and should have been on meds to prevent the attacks.
Unfortunately, the third attack, a week latter, even though on heart meds killed her at 14 1/2 years old.
She was and still is the dearest thing to my heart, and I cried looking at that video because I saw little Gidget flashing before my eyes all over again.
Some people just don't have common sense, when it comes to what's normal for a dog and what isn't. Apparently this dog must be having them all the time, or why else would the owner be so ready with a cam in his hand? I can only hope that the owner sees all of these comments and understands something is wrong with his dog.
