Muscle Cramps in Scottish Terriers

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Unfortunately, there is no specific treatment available at this time. However, behavioral modification and/or environmental changes have been shown and are recommended to eliminate triggers which may cause the onset of symptoms.

 

Living and Management

 

Overall prognosis is good in Scottish Terriers with mild forms of the disorder, while those with severe Scotty Cramp have a more dismal prognosis. Follow your veterinarian's suggestions for behavioral modifications and place your dog in a stress-free environment, away from other pets and active children.
