Seizures in dogs

My newly adopted dog  - female, 1 and 1/2 yrs, pit-boxer-lab mix - just had a seizure. It was a grand mal, fully involved. She had one other seizure 11 days ago at the shelter. Any suggestions on whether we should have her seen by the vet before Monday or not?

Was she checked for parvo at shelter?   I once had a mixed breed med size to small dog once who had to be put on daily medication to prevent the grand mals.  He was the runt of the litter and evidently (tested by lab) lacked some nutrients he missed out in not being able to wean successfully with the mother dog.  He lived till 14 yrs and the onset of the disease was diagnosed when he was about 6 yrs old.  Good luck.
