Causes of Dog Seizures (Part 3)

Yesterday I covered the 2nd cause of dog seizures: Toxins. Today is the 3rd cause:

BRAIN TUMORS. Obviously, one of the easiest things to rule out, as a cause of dog seizures, is whether there is an abnormal growth in the dog’s brain. Growths cause pressure on the brain tissue, which in turn can cause seizures and other neurological abnormalities. Fortunately, there are diagnostic tests (MRI or CAT scans) that can determine if that is the problem; however, only a very small percentage of dog seizures are caused by tumors or head injuries. In either case, anti-epileptic drugs would not be effective for dogs suffering from seizures caused by either of them.

Check back again tomorrow for the 4th cause of dog seizures! And don’t forget to sign up for our fan club on the right sidebar =) You’ll get a sneak-peek at Chapter of Cory’s Story as our thank-you!
