A seizure or convulsion is a sudden excessive firing of nerves in the brain. It results in a series of involuntary contractions of the voluntary muscles, abnormal sensations, abnormal behaviors, or some combination of these events. A seizure can last from seconds to minutes.

Seizures can occur for a variety of reasons including

  • Low blood glucose (sugar)
  • Liver disease (called "hepatic encephalopathy")
  • Inflammatory or infectious diseases that affect the nervous system
  • Poisons or toxins
  • Brain tumor
  • Head trauma
  • Blood vessel disorders that affect circulation to the brain
  • Congenital problems

    Always call or see your veterinarian if you witness your dog having a seizure.
