Causes of Dog Seizures (Part 2)

Yesterday I covered the first cause of dog seizures: Epilepsy. Today I’ll cover the next cause:

TOXINS. Unfortunately for dogs, there are all kinds of toxins in their environment, many of which can cause seizures.  These toxins range from poisons to get rid of rodents or slugs to flea powders or chemicals that are actually meant for dogs to wear as collars.  Antifreeze, insecticides and paint products are also known toxins which can not only induce seizures, but can kill the unwitting animal that ingests them.  With early treatment and intervention, most animals have a good to fair prognosis of making a full recovery if they have a seizure as a result of an environmental poisoning.

Come back tomorrow for the next cause in this 5-part series! And in the meantime, if you’d like to get a sneak-peek at Chapter 1 of Cory’s Story, just sign up using the form over there on the right sidebar, and you’ll be able to read it instantly. I hope you like it!
