Canine epilepsy is a very serious ailment for dogs, but it is also one of the most mysterious ones. And most of the causes, symptoms and treatment are still in the research phase. Thousands of dogs around the world experience epilepsy. These dogs and their owners face great turmoil and worrying about the condition and suffering of their best buddies.
