What is the cause of puppies twitching?
There are many reasons for puppies’ convulsions, and the most common reason is infection with canine distemper virus. If it is mainly neurological symptoms, convulsions will usually appear in the early stage of infection, and if it is mainly respiratory symptoms, convulsions will usually appear in the later stages of infection.
If it is electrolyte disorder in the body, it is more likely to cause convulsions in the puppies. There are many reasons for electrolyte imbalance. It is recommended to consult a veterinarian in time.
If a dog has epilepsy, there will always be convulsions in life. Sometimes, it will keep twitching, sometimes, it will twitch intermittently, even if you take it to the hospital, there is no way to cure it. If you take it to the hospital, it is only for the doctor to control its condition, and it is impossible to eradicate it. Because of this, you must take care of your dog. As long as you take good care of it, your dog’s chance of getting epilepsy will be much smaller.
In another case, if the dog has a twitch, everyone can ignore it. When the dog’s body cramps, it will also twitch, but after a twitch or two, it will get better. This situation mostly occurs in juvenile dogs. They are developing and the internal bones of the body are not fully formed, so convulsions occur.
When a dog’s body is deficient in calcium, its body will also twitch. However, in this case, it twitches only one or two twitches, and there is no other manifestation. If you find that your dog only occasionally twitches one or two times, then you should prepare it for calcium supplementation. As long as it is supplemented with calcium, it will not twitch anymore.
