EpiPlus for dogs and cats ~ Treatment for epilepsy -- Dog & Cat Seizure Remedy
What are the symptoms and causes of epilepsy and convulsive seizures in dogs and cats?
Most seizure episodes last for a very short time, usually less than a minute. They can be characterized with the animal stiffening, becoming immobile, but with a rapid mouth and tongue movement. Often a saliva foam forms around the pet's mouth. It may possibly end with a running motion of the legs and a glazed or dazed look in the pet's eyes. These minimal attacks may steamroll into a grand mal seizure, where the pet will be victimized by violent body spasms.
The following are just some of the suspected causes, and there actually may be more than one cause:
Vaccinations: A few weeks after a pet receives a vaccination, an allergic encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain) may develop and cause seizures. This reaction may be due to the proteins and/or organisms contained in the vaccine.
Head Trauma: An epi pet that is involved in an accident may develop convulsive seizures.
Worm Infestation: Seizure episodes may be the result of worm infestation, particularly roundworm. These and other parasites release toxins that may have an adverse effect on the central nervous system.
Distemper: Puppies that have had distemper may also have seizures.
Lead, Chemical Additives, and Poisons: High amounts of lead in food or in the environment can contribute to an epileptic condition. This also pertains to chemical additives contained in food, or household poisons that your pet may have obtained
How seizures are generally treated?
A particularly stressful time for any owner is when their beloved pet has some sort of illness or distress. Seizure episodes are frequently treated with a type of nervous system depressant drug, such as Phenobarbital. These drugs have absolutely no curative powers. It only aids in decreasing the frequency of the episodes. In addition, the longer a nervous system depressant is administered to a pet, the chances are greater that the drug will eventually cease to be effective. You are encouraged to ask your veterinarian for complete information about any drug that may be prescribed for your pet.
