What Should I Do if My Dog Has Cluster Seizures?

by | Sep 27, 2021

Answered by Dr. Jeff Feinman

First, I should define that a little bit more. Cluster seizures are a seizure in the dog that occurs more than a couple of times a month like they’ll have one, they recover, then they’ll have another one, then they recover. So not individual seizures that occur sporadically rather seizures that occur in clusters. 

Cluster seizures are a medical emergency and the clustering must be stopped. The first thing is to go to your local vet or ER and they will stop the seizure usually with medications like intravenous or valium. If you’re working with an energetic practitioner like one in traditional Chinese veterinary medicine or homeopathy or another holistic vet, with the stabled featuring dog, that’s after the clusters, they may be able to help reduce the frequency of clusters using lifestyle changes, energetic changes, and things that modify the dog’s responses internally and decrease seizures.
