Dogs experience seizures in much the same way humans do, and also suffer from epilepsy (repeated episodes of seizures). Although seizures are one of the most frequently reported neurological conditions in dogs, the underlying causes are much less clear.

It’s not always obvious when your dog is having a seizure, so it’s vital to recognize what one looks like. In addition to collapse and involuntary twitching or jerking movements, they may be foaming at the mouth or drooling, chewing their tongue or experience complete loss of consciousness. Keeping your dog safe and calm during an episode is key.
