I've just uploaded a video that I'm going to take to the vets if you wouldn't mind looking.

Phoebe, an Italian Greyhound I had, had this type of seizure every 6-8 weeks or so. Her legs would splay out, her body and head would wobble from side to side, and she'd tremble. You could tell she was aware she'd lost control of her body, but she couldn't do anything but ride it out. I'd hold her when she had them, because occasionally she'd stagger-run while seizing and crash into walls.

The only trigger I ever identified was overheating, as they did seem to happen most often when she had been sleeping under covers for a long period of time, though they happened at other times, as well. I adopted Phoebe when she was 6 years old, but her first seizure happened about 2 years earlier.

When I made the switch from kibble to prey model raw feeding, her seizures reduced dramatically. She went from seizing once every 6-8 weeks to once in 2 years.

Thanks for your responses. We haven't had one today which is great. Yes, she does try to run sometimes so I do usually hold her close to me. I've seen many of her seizures and she's never tried to bite or snap. It usually calms her down and they go quicker. The video that I posted is the first time I let her ride it out and it was longer than usual.
