Picture of a dog suffering from Hydrocephalus


Also known as "water on the brain." Neurological disease in which there is excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the ventricular system of the brain.


Symptoms of hydrocephalus vary with the cause, the age at presentation, the brain tissue being compromised, and the degree of tissue damage. Some signs of hydrocephalus include an altered mental state, crying out, hyperexcitability, extreme dullness, coma, seizures, visual or auditory impairment, spastic or clumsy walking, circling, head pressing, head tilt and abnormal eye movements.


Depending on severity treatment can include medication and/or surgical procedures. Neurological diseases in dogs can cost thousands of dollars to treat. Before your dog is diagnosed with a serious illness get a pet insurance plan so you can afford treatment.
