    Question submitted during Session III of The Canine Epilepsy Summit:

    "Is it common after a grand mal seizure for a dog to have focal seizures? I think my dog had a couple of focal seizures yesterday after a grand mal."

    - Answer provided by a Session III Panelist:

    Yes this might occur. Focal seizures can occur either before a generalized or sometimes can occur as a cluster following generalized activity.
