  • What should i do when my pet has a fit?

    1. Don't try to stop it. 2. Start counting or timing how many seconds it lasts. 3. Remove sharp objects or dangerous obstacles from the animal's immediate area. 4. Contact your Vet as soon as possible.

  • What causes fits?

    Fits are a sign of many different diseases. They are a sign of the disease "epilepsy", but they can also be a sign of other diseases in other parts of the body. Only after these other disease possibilities have been ruled out by tests can a diagnosis of epilepsy be decided. Fits can be caused by problems outside the brain. E.g. liver disease, low blood sugar, lead poisoning, snailbait ingestion, heatstroke, or inside the brain. E.g. head trauma or distemper.

  • Is it important to try to control epilepsy?

    Yes. If not controlled with medication (usually daily), the "blown fuse" will most likely affect a progressively larger area of the brain. This will result in more frequent and more severe "crossed wires", which can eventually be fatal if they persist for long enough.

  • How often will epileptic animals have fits?

    It is quite variable from animal to animal. The period between fits may be anywhere from one day to several weeks.

  • How long can my pet live with epilepsy?

    That is impossible to predict, but most epileptic animals have normal lifespan. Regularly monitoring your pet's medication, and maximizing seizure control are important factors that contribute to a normal life. Related Articles Below is a list of similar articles.

  • Are fits painful to my pet?

    No. while they may seem confused, there is no evidence that the animals experience physical pain.

  • Is a fit the same as a convulsion?

    Yes. The words "fit", "seizure" , and "convulsion" all mean basically the same thing. The word "epilepsy", however, means something different (see further below).

  • Is there a cure for fits?

    Sometimes, it depends on what is causing them (see above) EPILEPSY Epilepsy is the name for a very specific disease process within the brain. The exact cause is not known but the process can be likened to an electrical short circuit, or a "blown fuse". The "blown fuse" causes temporary 'crossed wires', which you see as a fit - inco-ordinated activity.

  • Is there a cure for epilepsy?

    No - remember that epilepsy is defined here as a particular disease of the brain. It can only be controlled with medication , not cured.

  • What is a fit?

    Your animal may lose control of some or all if its muscles. This may appear as trembling or twitching, or a fainting spell, or any range of behavior in between the two extremes. Your animal may appear to be mentally disoriented, dizzy or blind. It may also lose control of its bowels and/or bladder.
