Epilepsy is a common neurologic disease frequently encountered by small animal practitioners. The disease comprises a multiplicity of clinical presentations and etiologies and often necessitates a comprehensive as well as cost-intensive diagnostic workup. This is mandatory in order to be able to diagnose or exclude a metabolic cause of the seizures and to distinguish between idiopathic and structural epilepsy. The examination by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) represents a central component of the diagnostic workup, which in turn has essential effects on treatment and prognosis. In order to achieve standardized examination and comparable results, it is of utmost importance to use defined MRI protocols. Accordingly, communication and interaction between clinical institutions may be facilitated and as of yet undetected structural changes might be recorded in future MRI techniques. This review article sets particularly emphasis on the definition and classification of epilepsy as well as its diagnostic imaging procedures and refers to statistics and specialists' recommendations for the diagnostic workup in dogs.
