Epilepsy is one of the most debilitating and frightening disorders suffered by dogs, and finding up to date information is not always easy for breeders and owners.
A comprehensive new series of reports has just been published by the International Veterinary Epilepsy Task Force, which was formed in 2014 to produce consensus statements on the key areas in the field of epilepsy for veterinarians, breeders, and owners.
This week, they have published 7 reports that cover everything from classification, terminology, diagnosis, genetics, diagnosis, treatment, outcome, and research. You can download the entire compilation as a single pdf or an Acrobat pdf portfolio, or as individual documents below.
