Seizures In Cats

Seizures in cats are less common than in dogs. It can occur in cats of any age or breed, but older cats tend to have more health issues (tumors, trauma, infections, etc.) in which seizure is a primary symptom.

Many cases of feline seizures are linked to certain changes in the brain. But about 50% of cases of seizure in cats are of unknown causes.

Seizures in cats can be characterized by the following symptoms:
  • Drooling
  • Sudden burst of hyperactivity
  • Twitching of the facial muscles
  • Tremors, convulsions, and other forms of uncontrolled muscle activity
  • Loss of consciousness

The treatment regimen will depend to a large extent on the results of certain tests that may be performed by your veterinarian. Read more here.
