Seizures are one of the most common neurological conditions in dogs. The scientific term for seizure is “ictus.” A seizure may also be called a convulsion, attack, or fit and is a temporary involuntary disturbance of normal brain function that is usually accompanied by uncontrollable muscle activity. They occur when too much electrical activity is going on in the outer layers of a dog’s brain called the cortex, which is responsible for thought, memory, sensation, and movement. Seizures are the result of muscle responses to an abnormal nerve-signal burst from the brain. They are symptoms of an underlying neurological dysfunction. Toxic substances and metabolic or electrolyte abnormalities and/or imbalances cause an uncoordinated firing of neurons in the cerebrum of the brain, creating seizures from mild petit mals to severe grand mals.

Epilepsy is one of the most familiar chronic neurological diseases and is a common yet challenging presentation in veterinary surgeries. This book covers seizure pathogenesis, classifications, diagnostic investigations, emergency treatments and longer term treatments, with a large section on pharmacological intervention. Filling a considerable gap in the veterinary literature, it includes tables and charts for quick reference during emergencies. Seizures can be very distressing to animals and owners, yet not all seizures are the result of epilepsy, a neurological condition. This book discusses how to distinguish between epileptic and non-neurological seizures, and provides case studies to illustrate different occurrences of epilepsy.

As the owner of a dog with epilepsy you face many challenges, one of which is keeping track of seizures, medications and side effects. This journal will help you keep that information together in one place. The records you keep will help you and your vet to reach decisions about treatment and help you see if treatments are effective. This journal is easy to use, and you can bring it to consultations with your vet. Year to View Calendar - Makes it easy to see frequency and note changes over time. Medication History - Track your dog's medications, dose changes and side effects. Seizure Log - Record what happens before, during and after a seizure. Easy for family members, dog sitters or kennels to update. Track patterns and frequency on the calendar pages. Keep a detailed history of medications, dose changes and side effects. Look for triggers and warning signs. Track how medication or changes you make impact your dog's condition. Tick box format makes it quick and easy to record triggers. Written in plain English - easy for anyone to update and understand including those who may not be familiar with medical terminology. Undated so you can start any time. Calendar covers four years allowing plenty of space to add historical data if you choose. Section for questions to ask your vet. Space for your notes and observations on the seizure log pages. Why Is It Important to Keep a Seizure Log? There are several important reasons for keeping a seizure diary - to aid in diagnosis, to help you and your vet to make decisions about treatment, and to help you spot patterns and triggers. Diagnosis & Treatment Decisions Writing down what happens before, during and after a seizure can help your vet identify the type of seizures that your dog is experiencing. This is important because some medications are more effective for certain types of seizures. Keeping a record also helps you and your vet decide whether medications are effective or need changing. If seizures get better, stay the same, or get worse after a medication change everyone needs to know. A log will also help you track side effects from medications that you give your dog. All this information helps you and your vet make informed decisions about treatment. This journal allows you to keep all your notes and questions together and to share them when you take your dog to appointments. Patterns & Triggers Writing down the time, where your dog was and what was going on prior to a seizure may help you spot patterns and identify potential triggers. Some common triggers are listed on the seizure record pages as tick box options, and there are spaces to record your own. There is also a notes section for your own thoughts and observations. Identifying triggers could help you make changes that may help your dog. Keeping records will also help you see if any changes you introduce are making a difference. Make record keeping one less thing to worry about by keeping all your dog's information together in a journal specifically designed for epilepsy management.

Handbook of Veterinary Neurology provides quick access to vital information on neurologic conditions in a wide range of species, including canine, feline, bovine, caprine, equine, ovine, and porcine. A problem-oriented approach makes it easy to diagnose and treat neurologic problems in small and large animals. The coverage of disorders by problem, not by established disease diagnosis, emulates how animals present to the veterinary hospital and simplifies the formulation of a correct diagnosis. Within each chapter, discussions of neurologic disease include a review of the localization criteria and the diseases that can cause that problem, plus treatment and surgical techniques. Lead author Michael D. Lorenz brings decades of experience to neurologic assessment, using a diagnostic approach that requires minimal knowledge of neuroanatomy. A problem-based approach is organized by presenting sign rather than by condition, guiding you to logical conclusions regarding diagnosis and treatment. Algorithms diagram the logic necessary to localize lesions and to formulate diagnostic plans. Coverage of current diagnostic techniques includes the use of diagnostic tools, such as radiology, spinal fluid analysis, electrodiagnosis, and MR imaging. Case histories in each chapter present a problem and the results of the neurologic examination, then ask you to solve the problem by localizing the lesion, listing probable causes, and making a diagnostic plan. Answers are provided at the back of the book. A consistent format for each case history includes signalment, history, physical examination findings, and neurologic examination. A comprehensive appendix describes species and breeds that have a congenital predisposition for particular neurologic diseases. Extensive references make it easy to pursue in-depth research of more advanced topics. A companion website includes 20 narrated video clips with accompanying PowerPoint slides that correlate to the case histories in the book, covering neurologic assessment and clinical problems such as paresis of one limb, tetraparesis, stupor, seizures, ataxia of the head and limbs, and cranial nerve disorders. Two new co-authors, Jean Coates and Marc Kent, board-certified in neurology, enhance the credibility of this edition. A full-color design and numerous illustrations include enhanced images of neuroanatomy and pathology.
