Epilepsy is probably the most common neurological disorder in veterinary medicine. The unpredictable and violent nature of epileptic seizures can cause severe emotional distress to owners of affected animals. Successful management requires an accurate assessment of the patient and commitment of the owner. A good relationship and mutual respect between the veterinarian and client are crucial for the optimal management of epilepsy. It is therefore important that you feel confident about clinical decision making and supply the owner with all necessary information.
