The management of canine epilepsy has to be adjusted to the individual needs of the dog and its owner. In 2015, the International Veterinary Epilepsy Task Force (IVETF) published the "Consensus Proposal: Medical treatment of canine epilepsy in Europe", proposing a systematic therapeutic approach for dogs suffering from idiopathic epilepsy or structural epilepsy. It also gives an overview over antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) licensed for dogs and recommends drug treatment protocols. The consensus proposal is based on current published evidence-based literature, considers the current legal framework in Europe, and reflects the authors'experience. In this article, the contents of the consensus proposal are summarized in German language.
