If you have ever seen a seizure occur in an animal or a human, then I don't need to tell you how stressful it can be. Most people feel helpless and frightened when they witness a seizure, especially if it's the first time. Unfortunately, seizure disorders in dogs are all too common. Whether or not your dog has had a seizure in the past, it is essential that you educate yourself. If your dog ever has a seizure, knowledge may be the thing that saves her life.

Not all dogs that experience seizures are epileptics. In fact, there are a number of causes for seizures. Some can be cured while others are able to be medically managed. Take the time today to learn about seizures in dogs. It could make all the difference tomorrow.

Have you had a dog with seizures? Tell us about your experience.
