Back to Health A to Z. Tics are fast, repetitive muscle movements that result in sudden and difficult to control body jolts or sounds. They're fairly common in childhood and typically first appear at around 5 years of age. Very occasionally they can start in adulthood. Tics are not usually serious and normally improve over time. But they can be frustrating and interfere with everyday activities. Tourette's syndrome , a term that's used when tics have lasted for more than a year, is covered separately.
Dogs can suffer from many health problems , including neurological issues which are often worrying for pet owners to deal with. Below are most common neurological problems in dogs and what to do about them. The cause of this neurological problem in dogs is still unknown , although it is believed to be hereditary.
Back to Tics. Tics do not always need to be treated if they're mild, but treatments are available if they're severe or are interfering with everyday life. Many tics will eventually go away or improve significantly after a few years. But, if untreated, more severe tics can cause issues such as difficulties at school or social problems. If your child is finding school difficult, talk to their teacher about ways of dealing with this.
