Epilepsy is present in Irish setters. The Irish Setter Club of America has supported research to attempt to determine if there is a hereditary component to idiopathic epilepsy in Irish setters. With seizure disorders, it is important that Irish setter puppy buyers ask breeders about the frequency of occurrence of such disorders in the pedigree.
