many people, their pets are like their own children and seeing them
sick is heartbreaking. It can be especially terrifying to watch your
pet have a seizure. This is something that can happen at any time.

injuries, brain tumors, infections (viral, fungal, and bacterial),
heat stroke, parasites, and certain health problems such as diabetes.

the veterinary hospital for testing. If your pet has a seizure, you

your pet can hurt itself on. Seizures are unpredictable, and your pet
could fall and end up doing further physical damage. Move any
furniture or other objects that your pet could bump into or step on.
you need to do is call your vet, even if the seizure occurs after
regular office hours. There will be an on-call emergency vet who will
make sure that your pet is cared for. If this is your pet’s first
seizure, once you get to the clinic a full examination will be done,
including blood work, to find the cause of the seizure. Then, the
cause will be treated to prevent future seizures from occurring.

see the vet. It is a good idea to start keeping a written diary of
each seizure episode. Write down when the seizures happen (it may be

on, and how long it takes for your pet to return to normal following

information to help the vet come up with the best course of treatment
