Seizures in dogs & cats
Although seizures are often thought of as dramatic events, there are a number of different types of seizures, some of which may appear to be quite subtle.
A generalized seizure (Also known as grand mal seizure, fit or convulsion) generally causes a sudden decrease in state of consciousness, repeated movements of the body due to uncontrolled muscle contractions, excessive salivation, vomiting and often a loss of bladder and bowel control. This event may last from 30 seconds to a few minutes. It is generally followed by a period of drowsiness, difficulty walking or seeing, as well as changes in behaviour which can last around 24 hours. This is known as the "Post-Ictal" period.
The other main type of seizure is a focal motor seizure which is a much less dramatic occurrence. A focal motor seizure will cause just a repeated twitching movement in either the face or limbs and usually only lasts a few seconds. These type of seizures may often go unnoticed especially if they involve fairly innocuous movements like swallowing.
Seizures occur because of a change in the electrical activity of the brain. This can be caused by a variety of things including diseases of the nervous system and the brain itself such as epilepsy. Seizures may also be the result of an injury to the head, a tumour in the brain, toxic chemicals, poisons, very high fever and even nutrient deficiencies such as calcium deficiency in nursing mothers. Diabetic pets will seizure or 'fit' when their glucose levels drop too low.
Treatment for seizures is directed at the underlying cause or disease in cases where this is known. Anti-epileptic drugs such as Phenobarbital are commonly used to prevent seizures which are severe or occur frequently. Potassium bromide is also used to control seizure activity in pets that don’t respond to Phenobarbital or who show signs of over-sedation on doses of phenobarb. In the case of continued, repeated seizures your vet may treat your pet with intravenous valium and even put your pet under anaesthetic in order to stop the abnormal electrical activity that is happening in your pet’s brain.
It is important to seek medical care for your pet if he/she has more than one seizure per month, has changed behaviour in between the seizures (excluding the “Post-ictal” period directly after the seizure) or becomes generally lethargic, has difficulty in walking or refuses food. Seek urgent veterinary attention in the case of your pet seizuring continuously.
The natural way
Many herbs and natural homeopathic remedies can safely and effectively support your pet’s general health and help to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures, thus eliminating or reducing the need for prescription drugs for epilepsy and seizure disorders in pets.
A holistic approach to your pet’s condition is the best approach: feed a well-balanced natural diet and ensure that your pet has plenty of regular exercise, while supplementing with natural medicines for optimal health.
It is also important to ensure that your dog or cat has a safe environment to avoid injury should seizures occur. This would include making sure that swimming pools have safety nets and that stairs are secured with safety gates to prevent falls during a seizure. Reducing stress is also an important factor in helping to reduce seizures - as stress is a known trigger for a seizure.

Feelgood Pet Tips:
- Your dog or cat having a seizure is a terrifying experience both for you and your pet. As hard as it may be, remain calm. Do not try to restrain your pet in any way. Ensure that they will not injure themselves by moving furniture out of the way and be aware that they will be disorientated and may show aggressive behaviour during the recovery period.
- Cluster seizures (seizures occurring in rapid succession after each other) are to be treated as a medical emergency and your pet needs to be taken to your closest vet. If your pet has only had one seizure and appears to be recovering, then observe him/her from a distance. By rushing your pet to the vet and stressing them out you may actually trigger another seizure. It is advisable to have your pet checked over within 24 hours of any seizure activity even if there have been no further seizures.
- Some pets will have one seizure and then never, ever seizure again but usually seizures become more frequent and the severity and length of seizure may increase.
- Owing to the variety of causes for seizures in pets it is advisable to have a full screening run on your pet to rule out causes such as diabetes or a tumour in the brain. If all the tests come back as normal, your vet will probably make a diagnosis of idiopathic epilepsy, in simple English – epilepsy with an unknown cause.
- Talk to a holistic vet before immunising your pet. Conventional over-vaccination may stress the immune system unnecessarily and negative side effects may occur, these include seizures and other nervous system disease.
- As stress may precipitate seizures in susceptible animals, try to keep this to a minimum. If you know that a stressful event is coming up (e.g. home renovations or perhaps a trip to the vet), a few doses of our PetCalm prior to and during the stressful event would be beneficial to control stress levels and calm your dog or cat.
