The causes of seizures are vast. Seizures can be broken in structural or metabolic, genetics and unknown causes. In most cases the primary cause is never identified. Through selective testing a potential cause may be identified. Testing for possible causes is an essential part of management and prognosis. Treatment is based on multiple factors including frequency and severity of the seizures. Owners should share all they know about the pet’s history with their veterinarian.
