Epilepsy



Epilepsy is a disorder in which seizures (‘fits’) occur repeatedly.

There can be many causes of seizures and it is important that we check for these underlying conditions.

Sometimes the fit begins as a result of damage to the brain, but usually there is no apparent reason for the fits and the animal is otherwise completely healthy - in this situation the condition is known as epilepsy.

As the owner of an epileptic dog, you may have experienced the distressing sight of your dog having a fit.

It is important to remember that in typical epileptic fits the dog is unconscious and not aware that he/she is having a fit.

Also, in most instances effective treatment is possible, and many epileptic dogs enjoy a pain-free, long and happy life.
