Seizures in Dogs and Cats offers a practical, complete resource for the veterinary management of seizures in dog and cat patients. The book is carefully designed for ease of use in the clinical setting, presenting clinically oriented information on the etiology, diagnosis, and management of seizures.

The book begins with chapters on the history, biology, and classification of seizures, then covers diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment, emergencies, and complementary medicine. Unique chapters cover client communications and potential future directions of the field.
