A Healthy Dog Pt2

 ” A dog has the soul of a philosopher.”

EPILEPSY
(and other neurological issues)

Another commonly misdiagnosed problem is the onset of epilepsy or any other neurological damage causing pain and discomfort. Your dog cannot tell you he has a headache. They cannot warn you they are going to have an episode. Also, a dog does not need to have a fit to have epilepsy.

Primary, Secondary and Reactive are the three types of canine epilepsy.

Secondary Epilepsy can be caused by problems such as a brain tumour, severe injury or trauma or even a stroke. It is sometimes referred to as symptomatic epilepsy.

Reactive epileptic seizures can be caused by problems such as liver failure, kidney failure, or even low blood sugar.
