Epilepsy is the most common chronic neurological disorder in dogs, affecting an estimated 0.6 - 0.7% of the UK population. In many cases epilepsy is a lifelong disease and a new article has been added to the Kennel Club's Pet Health Information Pages to provide support, information and useful resources to owners of newly diagnosed dogs, or dogs under investigation.  To read the new epilepsy article please click here, or to view the Pet Health Information section, please click here.

The article is the latest edition to the Kennel Club's recently launched Pet Health Information web area, which aims to help owners find out about health problems that may affect or be affecting their dogs. These articles have been written by veterinary experts on a wide range of topics, including anal gland impaction, obesity, poisons, grass seed injuries and pyometra, to name a few.

The newly added epilepsy article has been written by Dr Rowena Packer Clinical Investigations Postdoctoral Researcher at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and Professor Holger Volk, Clinical Director of the RVC Small Animal Referral Hospital and Professor of Veterinary Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Royal Veterinary College.  

The number of articles in the Pet Health Information section will continue to grow, so please do check back sporadically to read the latest additions to the area.
