Five adult dogs presented for an acute onset of seizure activity. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed lesions in the olfactory bulbs, frontal lobes of the cerebrum, or both. A modified bilateral transfrontal sinus craniotomy was performed on each patient. The goal of removing the lesion was to relieve clinical signs and to provide tissue for histopathological diagnosis. In each instance, excision of the lesion was possible using this approach. No postoperative complications were observed. The modified bilateral transfrontal sinus craniotomy provides excellent access to the canine olfactory bulbs and frontal lobes.
