  • I dunno how common it is but one of my friends had a Husky with epilepsy and it wasn't pretty. Not only did they get themselves in serious debt trying to treat the dog but they eventually had to put him to sleep. It was very sad!
  • as common as humans
  • Not sure how common it is but I do know it happens. Also dogs can have food allergies. My dog that I got 3 months ago, at the age of 1 1/2 has food allergies. Strange hu? Also my neighbors dog had Diabetes. Good Question +3

  • My poor puppy died in my arms after having a horrible seizure..i will never forget it..Mother's Day 1999
