Seizures in Dogs and Cats offers a practical, complete resource for the veterinary management of seizures in dog and cat patients.
Seizures in Dogs and Cats
The book is carefully designed for ease of use in the clinical setting, presenting clinically oriented information on the etiology, diagnosis, and management of seizures. Each chapter begins with key points, then presents greater detail, making the book equally useful for fast access during the exam and for further reference.
The book begins with chapters on the history, biology, and classification of seizures, then covers diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment, emergencies, and complementary medicine. Unique chapters cover client communications and potential future directions of the field. Seizures in Dogs and Cats puts all the information needed to manage seizures in the veterinary clinic at your fingertips.
When asked by the publisher what I thought was lacking in the veterinary literature, naturally, the topic I spend most of my time answering questions came to mind—seizures in dogs and cats. Granted there are many excellent overviews on the topic included within veterinary neurology textbooks, my goal was to create a cohesive body of work that brought the aggregate of topics together, relating to epileptic seizures and epilepsy under one roof. The people who seek the knowledge whether they are practicing veterinarians, veterinary students, or pet caregivers inspire me.
