My question is regarding my tri- colored cavlier. She is 9 months old and has what they call Fly Snapping disease? I was wondering how often this is diagnosed in this Breed?

From what I've read, Neurologists seem to think "fly catchers syndrome" is a type of complex partial seizures (epilepsy). Epilepsy is quite common in the breed but cannot be tested for and since it is inheritable, dogs with epilepsy should not be bred. Good luck with your little girl!

My English Setter developed epilepsy at age 1 1/2, she has been symptom free for almost six years now.  Many new medications are always coming on the market, ask you vet to investigate.
I speak with the voice of experience, I too have epilepsy.  I have not have a serious temporal lobe seizure in 5 years.
Never give up!
