Question SIEZURE(S) in GSD???

I have recently been asked by a friend of mine if it's true that GSD are prone to siezures. I do not know the answer to this. I then saw a post on a local recue site for GSD about one of their GSD and how like "many other GSD", he is on "anti-seizure" meds. Can anyone tell me about this? AS far as, why or when or if? Is it something that would appear when they are a puppy or a teen or an adult? Curious curious...thanks in advance for any knowledge. Kim

I had a GS with seizures...but it was brought on by a tick illness and not something that was genetic.

Hi,

I think this site has a lot of great information on seizures for someone who is new to the topic.

Re: typical age of onset of idiopathic epilepsy, depending on who you talk to, some will say 1-3years old, others will say 2-4 years old.
