- Most seizures are caused by idiopathic epilepsy (basically, we don’t know why it happens)
- Seizures can also be caused by liver disease, low blood sugar, toxins, and other causes
What Does It Look Like?
- Shaking, tremors, strange facial movements, unable to stand, paddling with paws
- Sometimes will see loss of bowel and/or bladder
- Pets are unresponsive during and for a short period after seizures
What Do You Do?
- Do not try to help or restrain your pet during a seizure and keep your hands away from their mouth - they can accidentally bite you during the seizure
- There is no home treatment for seizures - have them checked by a veterinarian as soon as possible because they can continue to have seizures.
