Website to help owners of epileptic pets launches

A 2022 study found that pet owners with epileptic dogs often felt overwhelmed with the diagnosis and the information discussed at the initial consultation. It’s a lot to take in!

With over 60,000 epileptic dogs in the UK, many of you will already have had that diagnosis and will know first-hand the challenges that having an epileptic pet can bring. It is a complex neurological condition, so we weren’t surprised to find out that many owners shared the same worries and questions.

The same study concluded that greater availability of reputable resources would help to improve owner satisfaction, but we all know how difficult it can be to filter out the questionable (and often potentially dangerous) information shared online. We wanted to provide concerned owners with a trustworthy source of factual information, written by vets.

With this in mind, we have launched a new website for owners of epileptic pets. Myepilepticpet.co.uk is designed to offer additional support for the ongoing management of epilepsy, and to complement the advice and treatment already offered by their veterinary practices.

With detailed information and guidance on the condition, including travelling with an epileptic pet, feeding information, a downloadable epilepsy diary and answers to the most commonly asked questions, the website is an essential resource for people caring for an epileptic pet.
