CECS is a hereditary disease that affects Border Terriers. It was originally discovered in the early 1990s. It is also known as Spike's Disease. Though the cause is still unknown, there is evidence that it may be related to food or gluten sensitivity. Symptoms such as cramping, staggering, dizziness, muscle contractions, and neurological symptoms may occur. A gluten-free diet and avoiding egg, dairy, soy, and artificial ingredients have shown some promise as effective treatments for the condition, and some drugs have been used to treat cramping.
