Epilepsy in dogs is the result of a neurological impairment of brain functions - an electrical failure occurs in the bioelectric system of the body, resulting in reduced electrical stability and an attack that can occur both in the form of small seizures and in the form of powerful convulsive convulsions.
Often, epilepsy can be a consequence of liver and heart disease, diabetes, brain tumors, as well as the effect of toxic substances or head injuries. In these cases, we are talking about secondary epilepsy.
There are also true epilepsy, which has a connection with hereditary factors and a violation of the neurological functions of the brain, the appearance of which remains unexplored. In such cases, treatment can be directed only at the elimination of symptoms.
