It's not uncommon for clients to report periodic or episodic changes in a pet's behavior. Are these behavioral in origin or due to an abnormal focus in the brain resulting in seizure-like activity? Could it be neither or both?

Dr. Christensen discusses how to evaluate the patient with episodic behavioral changes and differentiate behavioral issues from neurologic abnormalities. Discussion includes treatment considerations as well as Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome and Fly Snapping in dogs.
