Causes of Dog Seizures (Part 5)

Yesterday I covered the 4th cause of dog seizures: Tick induced diseases.

Today I’ll cover the 5th and final cause in this series:

DISTEMPER.  Distemper, in which a fever develops, then diarrhea and dehydration, can cause seizures in dogs, especially puppies, when they lose their maternal antibodies at about the age of 3 months.  Only through the use of vaccinations can this debilitating disease be prevented, and once a dog has acquired it, they have a fight ahead for their very lives.

Stay tuned to the blog for my next series: Canine Epilepsy Treatment!
