|Oh, I hope you can get Maggie's seizures under control. Good to get to the vet ASAP as you seem to be doing since she has seized a few times on the same day. If she is not on meds perhaps it can be managed and controlled that way.
Also, I have literally seen some dogs become nearly seizure free if a diet change is made. Not sure how and what you feed but you may want to look into that too, while you and the vet probably use some med to control/stop the seizing.
I had one siberian with seizures related to Cushings and her pituitary gland. At age 14 we had to make a tough decision because she was strong physically, but she was not herself at all, and even had trouble drinking water.
I'm sure the vet will suggest an anti-convulsant for you to give her, and then maybe look at her diet. I believe I had read somewhere that a person who switched their dog to grain free food saw a significant reduction in seizures.
Good luck, and keep us posted. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope for a positive resolution.
