This is a video explaining what seizures are, and what might cause them. There's a lot of information here for owners just starting to go through this and those of us that have been in it for years and she explains it very well.
I hope it helps

Thanks for posting this Lynne.

It is very informative - a valuable resource for those new to canine epilepsy (and for my prospective dog sitter who is aware of but not at all familiar with Spencer's needs).

Thanks again.

Thanks so much for posting that Lynne. That was very informative. She mentioned in the video that cervical subluxation could cause seizures and I didn't even know this existed. Our dog had her first seizure (three weeks ago) about a minute after she was yanked back by her collar when she lunged at another dog. We somehow didn't even think about it until now, but it makes total sense that that could have caused trauma to her neck. We will definitely be looking into this. Thanks again!!!
