Definition of Nerve Disorders

A nerve disorder is a condition that disrupts the signals that normally are transmitted by nerves. These conditions can affect the entire body or just one area of it. Many different things can contribute to nerve disorders, including traumatic injury, ingestion of toxins, obesity, side effects from administration of medications and inherited disorders, among many others. Some nerve disorders only show up in certain breeds or are more prevalent in certain breeds, which strongly suggests that genetics play a big role in this condition. Dogs with nerve disorders often twitch and have stiff limbs, coordination difficulties, pain, seizures, toe-stepping gait, toes that fold inward, difficulty eating or drinking and other neurological problems. Nerve disorders are so complicated and variable in their type and cause that random generalizations about them really aren’t meaningful. These disorders need to be evaluated based on each dog’s history and symptoms.
