Anti-Epileptic Drug Therapy - What to do in Cases of Refractory Canine Epilepsy*
Refractory Canine Epilepsy
Refractory epilepsy continues to be a major concern in both human and veterinary medicine despite an increasing number of novel drugs being approved for use in human epilepsy. The use of add-on, off-licence anti-epileptic medications forms an important part of the management of refractory epilepsy, however this often results in relatively small improvements in seizure control. There should be additional focus on optimising first and second line medications, consideration of non-pharmacological treatments and management of significant comorbidities to achieve improved quality of life.
