    My friend told me that if I touch my dog when it has a fit, it will end up brain damaged or something. Is there any truth to this???

    My friend's dog has epilepsy and you can touch/cuddle/stroke him with no issues :fluffy:

    It's nonsense, unless 'touching him' is actually a euphemism for putting your hands around his throat and cutting off the air supply, thus starving the brain of oxygen and causing brain damage that way.

    Not sure about dogs, but you can touch people when they're having an epileptic fit, just as long as you don't hold them down because as their body moves violently it can cause injuries
