Customer Question

LAB 11 YR. OLD HAS LUNG CANCER CAN THIS CAUSE HER TO HAVE SEIZERS
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Dog Veterinary
Expert:  Dr. Drew replied 1 year ago.
Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian, and I'll be happy to help you.Lung cancer would not be expected to cause seizures, but if the cancer has spread to the brain, as lung cancer can do, it could be the cause for seizures.
Expert:  Dr. Drew replied 1 year ago.
Other causes for seizures can include liver disease, heart problems, certain drugs or chemicals / poisons, or rarely, thyroid issues. A brain tumor is by far the most common cause of seizures in elderly dogs.
