Epilepsy in Cats and Dogs


Raquel Trevail DVM, Dipl ECVN, MRCVS, European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology

Epilepsy is a common neurological presentation in general practice. Correct diagnosis can be challenging and this is paramount for management of the case and owners’ expectations. In this course we will discuss the different pathologies that can be misinterpreted as seizure activity and how to try to collect the right information in order to lead the investigations. Epilepsy aetiologies and treatment, which include drugs available and recent developments will be discussed in depth, as well as emergency treatment in cases of cluster seizures and status epilepticus. Video based cases will be available in order to discuss the neuroanatomical localisation, different diagnosis and recommended tests.

CPD from the comfort of your practice or home.

Vet CPD Online Tutored Courses take approximately 8 hours to complete and can be completed at your own pace and at any time over the course’s 3-week period. There are downloadable course notes and clinical cases to work through, plus – what make our courses unique – a busy clinical forumwhere questions and answers are posted and where delegates have access to the instructor for the duration of the course. This always generates some lively discussions and the idea that no one should leave a course with any unanswered questions.

At the end of the course there is a final exam plus a Certificate of Completion for your CPD records.
