Boy, that was scary

We're in the kitchen eating dinner and we hear our two boys playing in the other room, nothing out of the ordinary. I always get nervous when they rough-house, but my wife says it's normal. It may be, but I still get ansy when they do this. Any way, we hear a yelp and we run into the other room and we see the big guy (Oscar) just staring at us. We turn our attention to the little guy (Kramer) and he collapses. He tried he darnedest to stand up, but he couldn't. Then he started to shake. My wife stayed with him and tried to calm him, although I wish she tried to calm me down. I got the number for the vet, put Oscar in the other room and got ready to take Kramer to the vet. Fortunately, about 1 very long minute later, he stopped shaking and stood up on his own. While his eyes looked a little glazed, he acted pretty normal. Me, on the other hand, needed a drink. He ate a treat and acted pretty normal after that. While we don't really know what happened, we think they may have bumped heads. Right now he shows no ill effects. Boy, that was scary. Here's a picture of my cutie:

Sounds like Kramer had a seizure. If you can remember the details, write them down. Then if it should happen again, record the details. Our Spook had seizures until he was put on phenobarbitol. The vet said the details I provided were very helpful.

Don't panic, even if it was a seizure it's something that's easily treated and doesn't affect quality of life.
It does sound like Kramer had a seizure. I'd give the vet a call tomorrow just to run everything by him and see what he thinks.
Poor Kramer & poor Mommy & Daddy!! Am glad you took him to the vet. Can only emphasize how important it is to record details -- we all think something so traumatic (at the time) will never leave our memories but it's the small details that count. Here is a wonderful website where you can read all about seizures -- everything is written in a way not to scare you and you've probably already started to do internet searches: http://www.canine-epilepsy-guardian-angels.com/site_map.htm
Hugs to Kramer!
