A. Your cat is showing signs of severe neurological disorders. He also is having what we call cluster seizures- more than 1 per day. This is an alarm for us veterinarians that your pet needs an intervention. Cluster seizures have many causes and require a complete bloodwork panel and electrolyte panel to rule out any imbalances as the cause. Most owners can only afford to do this extent of diagnostics although it is always recommended to do a CT scan or MIR of the brain for further imaging and to rule out brain tumors. However, baseline bloodwork is the least needed to be able to start your pet on a trial of anti-seizure medication to help manage the seizures. If seizures are allowed to continue without intervention then there is a good chance that there will be permanent brain damage and potentially death.
