Seizure disorders occur frequently in dogs and cats. Estimates of seizure incidence during a lifetime vary from 0.5% to 5.7% of all dogs, and from 0.5% to 1.0% of all cats. Discussion of seizure disorders of all types must precede consideration of the clinical management of epilepsy. Such a broad approach is necessary because dogs and cats with a seizure disorder frequently have similar histories and clinical signs despite a wide variety of underlying causes of cerebral dysfunction (including epilepsy). Similarities in clinical histories of dogs or cats with a seizure disorder reflect the similar pathophysiological mechanisms that underlie seizure disorders of all types.

This lecture will include a discussion of the Definitions of Terms used in the discussion of seizures and epilepsy, the Classification of Seizures, the Causes of Seizures, and the Diagnostic Approach to an animal with a Seizure Disorder.
