cat seizures

my 1 and a 1/2 year old chuy is having seizures i went to vet and they told me it was her thyroid, i dont beleive them they did bloodwork and everything. Anybody else have info thanks
Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
While hyperthyroidism (elevated thyroid level) can indeed cause seizures, it's an uncommon disease in young cats as it usually affects the elderly. It's a disease with a good prognosis, however, so an effort should be made to make sure that's what he has. There are confirmatory tests but if there's any doubt, ask your veterinarian to refer you to a board certified feline or internal medicine specialist for a second opinion.
