Dog & Cat Seizures

A seizure in a dog or cat can range from momentary loss of normal consciousness (causing a dazed or disoriented look) to a Grand Mal seizure where the pet’s limbs are rigid, the front paws are paddling, his mouth is salivating, and teeth are clenching. A seizure that lasts even a few moments is cause for concern and should be investigated by your primary care veterinarian. Should your dog, cat or other pet have a seizure lasting more than a few moments, or have multiple seizures, seek immediate veterinary care.
