STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Seizures are the result of abnormal electrical activity in the brain
  • Seizures can range from mild (petit mal) to life-threatening (grand mal), and occur in three phases: preictal (before), ictus (during) and postictal (after)
  • There are many potential causes of seizures in dogs, including congenital malformations, brain tumors, infections, exposure to toxins and vaccines
  • Natural therapies, including acupuncture and homeopathic remedies, can often control mild cases of seizure disorder in dogs; a ketogenic diet is one of the best ways to naturally reduce seizure potential, and can be used with drugs or supplements
  • Dogs with frequent grand mal seizures benefit from an integrative protocol of natural therapies and drugs
