Q. Repetitive tongue and head thrusting with confusion and fear. Both times in late afternoon while at rest. 1st time a month ago.

A. I'm not sure what these symptoms are exactly, however, my first thought would be that this could be a type of seizure. Without further information and history this is hard for me to help you determine. More in depth information about what you are seeing your dog do would be the best of help
