A. Your dog may have been exposed to some kind of toxin, she may have a tumor or neurological condition, she may have sustained a head injury, there are a number of possibilities, but it sounds like she needs to be seen by a vet immediately, Sustained or repeated seizures can cause the body temperature to rise to dangerous levels and increases the risk of brain damage.
When you have a chance, take a look around and see if you can find anything she might have gotten into, since poisoning is one of the causes of seizures. If you do find anything she has chewed up, take it with you to the veterinarian so they know exactly what they're dealing with.
