Epilepsy Information/Causes


Epilepsy is a term used when the seizure disorder has no identifiable cause, such as brain disease. It is specifically a disorder involving recurrent seizures. Though seizure disorders affect less than 1% of animals, given sufficient circumstances any animal can have a seizure.
The cause of the seizure correlates, to some extent, with the age of onset. In some animals, seizures may be triggered by hormone changes such as pregnancy or menstruation. They may also be triggered by illness or sensory stimuli such as lights, sounds, and touch. In many cases, no trigger is found for the seizures. The amount of stimulation required to cause a seizure is called the “seizure threshold.” Many people with epilepsy are considered to have a low seizure threshold.
Common causes of seizures include
Idiopathic seizures, (no identifiable cause) usually begin in the adolescent years but can occur at any age with no other neurologic abnormalities present or often in a breed with a history of epilepsy or seizures.
Developmental or genetic conditions present at birth, or injuries near birth– in this case, the seizures usually begin in infancy or early puppyhood. Metabolic abnormalities
may affect any age, diabetes mellitus complications electrolyte imbalances kidney failure, uremia (toxic accumulation of wastes) nutritional deficiencies phenylketonuria (PKU)–can rarely cause seizures in puppies other metabolic diseases such as inborn error of metabolism Brain injury may affect any age. The highest incidence in young dogs is most likely if the brain membranes are damaged, seizures usually begin within 1-2 years after the injury, early seizures (within 2 weeks of injury)–do not necessarily indicate that chronic seizures (epilepsy) will develop Tumors and brain lesions that occupy space (such as hematomas) may affect any age, more common in mid-life partial (focal) seizures most common initially may progress to generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Disorders affecting the blood vessels (stroke, TIA, and so on) Degenerative disorders (senile dementia type, or similar organic brain syndromes) mostly affect older dogs.  Infections may affect all ages and may be a reversible cause of seizures, brain infections (meningitis, encephalitis) brain abscess, acute severe infections of any part of the body chronic infections (such as neurosyphilis). Prevention: Generally, there is no known prevention for seizure disorders. However, adequate diet and sleep may decrease likelihood of precipitating a seizure.


Epilepsy is characterized by seizures of any type that occur on a chronic, recurrent basis and have no known cause. In addition to seizures, there may be other symptoms or signs, such as changes in mood or energy level, dizziness, fainting, confusion, and memory loss.
An aura (sensations indicating a seizure is imminent), occur in some persons just prior to a generalized seizure.

Symptoms of generalized seizures


Petit mal seizures:
Minimal or no movements (usually, except for “eye blinking”) — may appear like a blank stare
Brief sudden loss of awareness or conscious activity — may only last seconds
Recurs many times
Occurs most often during childhood
Decreased learning (child often thought to be daydreaming)
Tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizures:
Whole body, violent muscle contractions
Rigid and stiff
Affects a major portion of the body
Loss of consciousness
Breathing stops temporarily, then “sighing”
Tongue or cheek biting
Confusion following the seizure
Weakness following the seizure
Symptoms of partial seizures
Simple partial (focal) seizures:
Muscle contractions of a specific body part
Abnormal sensations
May have nausea, sweating, skin flushing, and dilated pupils
May have other focal (localized) symptoms
Partial complex seizures:
Automatism (automatic performance of complex behaviors)
Abnormal sensations
May have nausea, sweating, skin flushing, and dilated pupils
May have other focal (localized) symptoms
Recalled or inappropriate emotions
Changes in personality or alertness
May or may not lose consciousness
Olfactory (smell) or gustatory (taste) hallucinations or impairments — if temporal focus
Signs and tests
The diagnosis of epilepsy and/or seizure disorders involves a history of recurrent seizures of any type. A physical examination, including a detailed neuromuscular examination, may be normal or may show focal neurologic deficits (localized abnormalities of brain functions).
An electroencephalograph (EEG), a reading of the electrical activity in the brain, usually confirms the presence of various types of seizures. It may, in some cases, indicate the location of the lesion causing the seizure. A normal EEG does not rule out a seizure disorder.
Tests for the cause may include various blood tests (as appropriate depending on the suspected cause), including:
A blood chemistry, blood glucose
Liver function tests
Kidney function tests
Tests for infectious diseases
A CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) analysis
Tests for the cause may include procedures such as:
A head CT or MRI scan
A lumbar puncture (spinal tap)
