This report represents a scientific and working clinical consensus statement on seizure management in dogs based on cur-rent literature and clinical expertise. The goal was to establish guidelines for a predetermined, concise, and logical sequentialapproach to chronic seizure management starting with seizure identification and diagnosis (not included in this report),reviewing decision-making, treatment strategies, focusing on issues related to chronic antiepileptic drug treatment responseand monitoring, and guidelines to enhance patient response and quality of life. Ultimately, we hope to provide a foundationfor ongoing and future clinical epilepsy research in veterinary medicine
