Levetiracetam (LEV) is a common add-on antiepileptic drug (AED) in dogs with refractory seizures. Concurrent phenobarbital administration alters the disposition of LEV in healthy dogs. To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of LEV in dogs with epilepsy when administered concurrently with conventional AEDs. Eighteen client-owned dogs on maintenance treatm...
Article
Objective: To determine the prevalence and clinical features of cryptogenic epilepsy among dogs. Design: Retrospective case series. Animals: 214 client-owned dogs with onset of epileptic seizures at ≥ 7 years of age. Procedures: A diagnostic imaging database was searched for dogs with symptomatic or cryptogenic epilepsy. Signalment, seizure...
Article
Intravenous benzodiazepines are utilized as first-line drugs to treat prolonged epileptic seizures in dogs and alternative routes of administration are required when venous access is limited. This study compared the pharmacokinetics of midazolam after intravenous (IV), intramuscular (IM), and rectal (PR) administration. Six healthy dogs were admini...
Article
Background Medically refractory seizures are an important problem in both humans and dogs with epilepsy. Altered expression of ABCB1, the gene encoding for p-glycoprotein (PGP), has been proposed to play a role in drug-resistant epilepsy. HypothesisHeterogeneity of the ABCB1 gene is associated with seizure outcome in dogs with epilepsy. AnimalsTwen...
Article
There is little evidence-based information available to guide treatment of refractory epilepsy in dogs. The antiepileptic drug levetiracetam (LEV) is administered to dogs, although its safety and efficacy are unknown. To evaluate the safety and efficacy of LEV as adjunctive therapy for refractory epilepsy in dogs. Thirty-four client-owned dogs with...

Objective: To measure pharmacokinetics of levetiracetam (LEV) after single-dose oral administration in healthy dogs and determine whether pharmacokinetics changed after repeated oral dosing. Animals: 6 healthy adult dogs. Procedures: Pharmacokinetics were calculated following administration of a single dose (mean, 21.7 mg/kg, PO; day 1) and af...

To determine the pharmacokinetics and safety of orally administered voriconazole in African grey parrots. 20 clinically normal Timneh African grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus timneh). In single-dose trials, 12 parrots were each administered 6, 12, and 18 mg of voriconazole/kg orally and plasma concentrations of voriconazole were determined via hig...

Injured or sick wild avian species, especially raptors (birds of prey, including hawks, owls, falcons, and eagles), can present different challenges to veterinary students and veterinarians who are trained in companion avian medicine (e.g., parrot medicine). Proper capture and restraint, feeding, housing, and certain diagnostic and treatment techni...
Article
Confidence and proficiency in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases is of obvious importance to veterinary students. Traditional teaching methods relying on live-animal laboratories or teaching-hospital cases may not provide the breadth and depth of experience necessary to promote optimal development of confidence and skills. These settings...
