Update on the management of the seizuring dog

Seizures are a common neurological condition in dogs. Epilepsy is a chronic condition which can require lifelong treatment. The causes of seizures can be diverse. It is important to determine the underlying cause to allow effective treatment. There are three licenced maintenance treatments for seizures in the UK. Each has its own downsides, but all can be effective in reducing seizure frequency when
used optimally. Phenobarbital and Imepitoin are effective in 63-90% and 45-57% of cases respectively, when used as monotherapies and potassium bromide in 52% of cases when used as a monotherapy and 72% when used in combination with phenobarbital. Idiopathic epilepsy can have a significant effect on both owner and patient quality of life, and owner expectations should be managed from the outset.
