Veterinary Highlights: Epilepsy Awareness Month

Each year, about 780,000 dogs are diagnosed with epilepsy!

Scientists in the NC State University Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research are investigating canine epilepsy—its causes, diagnosis, treatment, and management—advancing understanding of epilepsy.

Early pilot studies underwa include pharmacokinetic studies of novel anticonvulsants, evaluation of technologies to monitor and track seizures, explorations of the response of neurons at the time of seizures, and the role of allergens in epilepsy.
