WHAT IS A SEIZURE?
Surprisingly, seizures in dogs are more common than most pet owners are aware. A seizure is an uncontrollable reaction to a sudden neurological burst of activity occurring in the brain. In some instances, this excessive concentration of firing neurons remains localized, and other times spreads throughout the entire body. One of the key elements in distinguishing a seizure from some other conditions which may produce similar symptoms is the state of consciousness of your dog. During an actual seizure, your dog will not be conscious, or his state of consciousness will be wavering or abnormal.
