A. Sorry to hear your pet is so unwell. There are many, many reasons for seizures to develop and many times we do not have a specific diagnosis. Epileptic seizures are more common in poodles than many breeds but often present at a younger age. Unfortunately extensive tests can be required to identify neurological causes (such a growths), internal causes such as liver, kidney, electrolyte disturbances.
