Epilepsy is the term vets use if your pet is having repeated fits or seizures. For many pets no specific cause of the fits can be found. Vets call this “primary” or “idiopathic” epilepsy. These patients appear normal between fits. Fits can be caused by a problem elsewhere in your pet’s body. Vets call this “secondary” epilepsy. These patients may show other problems between fits.
