My dog has epilepsy … – … but lives life to the full! A practical guide for owners
ABOUT THE BOOK
Just like humans, dogs can suffer from epilepsy. It’s often described as an ‘electrical storm’ in the brain, when millions of nerve cells fire together resulting in a seizure. These fits can vary from mild to severe, and can be dangerous for the dog and distressing for the owner to witness. Thankfully, there’s a lot that can be done to help dogs with the disease live a full and happy life.
Whether your dog has just been diagnosed with epilepsy, or has lived with the condition for some time, My Dog has Epilepsy … but lives life to the full provides the answers to the questions that you’re likely to have about this disease – and shows the way forward.
Packed with practical advice and input from leading neurological vets, this guide is an invaluable companion for owners, with chapters on the different types of seizures; why they happen; the signs to look out for; how to protect your dog from injury during convulsions; the importance of the right diagnosis; treatment options; the role of diet and exercise; and quality of life issues.
