Hello, I got a Pomeranian about a year ago. He was 3 yrs old when I got him. He's had about 5 seizures since I've had him. Once he had 2 in one month. He usually recovers with energy and seems to be normal afterwards. The last seizure was 2 weeks ago, since then he has been walking off balance with his head tilted to the left side. He still eats, barks, and uses the bathroom but he has no balance. I'm very concerned. I also learned about idiopathic disease and some say this will go away in 2-3 weeks. Is this true? or should I take him to the vet for sure?
Yes, you should take him to the vet for sure. As often as he is having seizures, he will need to be on anti-seizure medication. Uncontrolled seizures, if they are allowed to continue, can eventually cause brain damage.
