Epilepsy of unknown origin is incurable, but treatment in the form of constant medication can help control and prevent progression in the severity of the condition in many cases. If untreated, epilepsy of unknown origin can, in extreme cases, lead to cluster seizures and status epilepticus and death. The aims of this study were to describe a short time EEG recording (30 minutes) using Redding’s model to determine the diagnostic value of electroencephalographic recordings in dogs suffering from epilepsy of unknown origin. Electroencephalograms were performed on 24 dogs of mixed breeds suffering from epilepsy of unknown aetiology. Anaesthesia was induced with medetomidine hydrochloride and ketamine. EEGs were obtained via five subdermal needle electrodes. The EEG was recorded with sensitivity = 70
