Pugs are prone to seizures for no known reason, of course it could be a sign of PDE (Pug Dog Encephalitis). My puggie had first seizure in July 2012, and he was already 5.5 years old.

 

we went through all examination still not able to find out the reason, so Vet can only say that is idiopathic epilepsy. He is currently getting good control of seizures with use Phenobarbital and Bromide, but weight gain is one of the horrible side effects. Our puggie has put on 7 pounds in six months since beginning phenobarbital to control epileptic seizures......

 

We are currently trying the Homeopathic treatments for keeping seizures away without harsh side effects.

Sorry to hear about this. My Milo had them when he was a puppy, could never find a cause. In the end i had to resort to a raw food diet and keep out the nasty processed food and they decreased dramatically. He hasn't had one like it since, they used to be horrible where he'd vomit, collapse, stiffen, make noises and poo/wee himself and very frequent. He has very rare moments where he'll go stiff in his sleep and wet himself now but very rarely perhaps every couple of months. He's 4 this year.
