Helping Owners

 

 

If you have witnessed your dog having a seizure (convulsion), you will know how frightening it can be. Seizures are not uncommon in dogs, but many dogs have only a single seizure.

Just as in people, there are medications for dogs that control seizures, allowing your dog to live a more normal life.
