Benign Familial Juvenile Epilepsy is an inherited disease affecting Lagotto Romagnolo dogs. Affected dogs develop seizures between five to nine weeks of age, but clinical signs resolve by about four months of age. Severely affected dogs may develop Ataxia in addition to seizures. Because the disease is transient and not associated with any other health problems, breeders have previously considered early onset, transient seizures as an accepted symptom of the breed. Prognosis for affected dogs is good.
