Levetiracetam shows promise for treatment of FARS in cats

Feline audiogenic reflex seizures (FARS) is a problem for older cats, and include myoclonic seizures in response to certain high-pitched sounds. Avoiding the high-pitched sounds is one solution. Another is suggested by a recent study. Researchers from Davies Veterinary Group and the University College London (UCL) School of Pharmacy in the United Kingdom compared the effects of levetiracetam, a relatively novel medication, with the much older first generation drug phenobarbital. The researchers concluded that levetiracetam was more effective for treating cats with hallmark myoclonic seizures. The study was published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery on Dec. 21.

The authors of a recent review article in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery say “the rate at which novel [or previously unknown] viruses are being discovered now exceeds our understanding of their clinical relevance.” And it’s not just happening to cats: A 2008 paper in Nature described the discovery of 335 infectious diseases in the global human population between 1940 and 2004.
