Chapters include standard veterinary treatment, liver damage, home management of fits, which can be eased if the owner knows what to do; also triggers which may bring on attacks, calming signals and a great deal of very helpful information. There are tips for owners, useful addresses and a chapter by John Saxton, B.Vet.Med, Vet.FFHom., Cert 1AVH, MRCVS. – alternative treatment going alongside conventional treatment. If you have an Epileptic dog, this book can help you to understand what is happening and how to make life easier for everyone.
