Our expert says:
It certainly sounds like your puppy is having a seizure, from which it is not recovering (called status epilepticus). There are many many different causes for this, including poisoning, virus infections, bacterial infections of the brain, trauma to the brain, worms, very low blood sugar, dysfunction of any of the organs, or purely severe epilepsy. The treatment obviously depends on the cause. It is true however, that the longer the patient remains in the seizure, the poorer the prognosis and the smaller the chance of survival with out damage to the brain.
Please let us know what happened, we are all holding thumbs for you.
