Causes of Dog Seizures (Part 4)

Yesterday I covered the 3rd cause of dog seizures: Brain Tumors.

Today is the 4th cause:

TICK INDUCED DISEASES.  The bite of the bloodsucking arachnid known as a tick can cause Lyme Disease or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, both of which can cause dog seizures.  If the tick is discovered within the first 24 hours after it has attached itself to the dog, the chance of infection is greatly reduced.  There are antibiotics that can kill Lyme Disease, and most dogs respond quite well in general to antibiotics.

As always, thank you for reading and remember to check back tomorrow for the 5th cause of dog seizures!
