Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) and Seizures in Pets: How to Recognize the Symptoms and What to Do

Intervertebral disc disease (herniated discs) and seizures are two of the most common emergency situations encountered in veterinary neurology. This discussion will cover how to recognize these conditions, when to seek medical attention, what testing/diagnostics can and should be performed, what treatment options are available, and what to expect from these treatment options. I will also discuss an innovative procedure that few specialists offer to prevent herniated discs in dogs.
