Epilepsy in Dogs

Epilepsy refers to pets that have seizures and no underlying reason is found. This is different from dogs that have fits caused by health problems such as a liver shunt or brain tumor.

Since epilepsy no known cause, treatment aims to control the symptoms. This is a fine balancing act between reducing the severity and frequency of the seizures without inducing unwanted side effects such as sedation or excessive appetite

Early Signs of Epilepsy
in Dogs

Ahead of seizure, many dogs seem aware something is about to happen. They may pace, dig, or become clingy of their owner.

These signs are worth nothing as it gives a window of opportunity to medicate the dog and stop an imminent seizure.

Epilepsy in Dogs: Symptoms

seizures are the primary symptom for epilepsy in dogs :

Falling onto their side, making paddling movements with the legs

Loss of consciousness

Whining or howling

Loss of bladder and bowel control

Seizures typically last between 30 seconds and 3 minutes. When the dog recovers they may be quiet, disoriented, hungry, or thirsty.

It’s not unusual for some canines to have seizures clusters or group of fits within a 24-48 hour period. Recognizing this is extremely valuable as your vet can supply pet first aid medications that suppress the number of epileptic fits.

Some dogs experience partial of ‘focal’ seizures. Instead of affecting the whole brain, the abnormal electrical activity is localized in one spot. The symptoms of a local seizure depend on which part of the brain is triggered and the function it controls. For example, the only sign you may see is twitching on one side of the body or face.
