Abstract

A logical approach to the clinical management of a dog or cat with a history of seizures caused by epilepsy is presented. The definition of epilepsy, the classification of epileptic seizures, and the causes of seizures are discussed. A diagnostic approach to dogs and cats with seizure disorders is outlined. Anticonvulsant therapy for epilepsy is discussed, including the objectives of therapy, decision to start therapy, selection of an anticonvulsant drug, monitoring anticonvulsant therapy, and anticonvulsant drug failure.
