Age of Onset

How variable is age of onset for inherited epilepsy within a breed - do you see that some lines have a different age of onset than others?

Nancy ,

Generally for most of the breeds I have looked at so far the age of onset is fairly consist with about 70 percent from 1-3 yrs, 90 percent form 6 months to 5 yrs, and a few on the outside.
