Has your dog been diagnosed with Idiopathic Epilepsy and had at least 2 seizures in the past 6 months?
One of our speakers, Holger Volk, is currently leading a study into canine idiopathic epilepsy at the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, in conjunction with Purina. The study intends to examine dogs with epilepsy aged over 6 months, of all breeds and cross-breeds to complete this survey. The researchers are looking for dogs with recurrent seizures, but which have not had any history of cluster (more than 1 seizure in 24 hours) or status epilepticus (prolonged seizure activity). The aim is to test the effects of diet on dog epilepsy.

If you, or anybody you know, has a dog which fits this criteria, it would be of great help to get involved. You will have to take your dog to the Queen Mother Hospital in Hertfordshire on a few occasions throughout next year, so it may not be feasible for you, but we hope you’ll know somebody who can do it – if so, please pass this message on!
Epilepsy is the most common chronic neurological brain disease in first opinion practice for domestic dogs, so your involvement could contribute towards unlocking new treatments and prevent animals suffering in the future. If you can get involved, then please do!
