Seizure disorders are common in small animal practice.
The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive, evidence-based resource to assist in the successful management of recurrent seizures in dogs and cats.
The book’s format is designed to present a logical, clinically relevant approach to a seizure patient, with detailed information on the broad range of topics involved in the diagnosis and treatment of seizure disorders.
The clinical and diagnostic approach to the seizure patient is discussed in depth, with dedicated chapters on idiopathic epilepsy in dogs, the genetics of epilepsy, feline epilepsy, quality of life, advanced imaging and electroencephalography.
The book also provides a comprehensive review of epilepsy treatment, including a discussion of general treatment guidelines and pharmacological principles, as well as more focused information on antiseizure drugs used in small animal practice, adjunctive therapies for drug-resistant epilepsy, and the management of cluster seizures and status epilepticus in dogs and cats. Algorithms are included throughout the book and each chapter contains a summary of key points, providing easy access to information to support clinical decision-making and patient care.
