Epilepsy in Dogs & Cats

All cases of epileptic fits should be treated in consultation with a veterinary surgeon, not only for diagnosis but so that the animal’s condition can be monitored. Each patient with this condition will have different levels of severity and therefore require individual treatment, which is why it is essential that veterinary advice be sought.

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets are licensed for use as an adjunct in the treatment of epilepsy and are usually given in conjunction with orthodox anti-spasmodic prescription medicines. By combining the treatments, veterinary surgeons have found that it may be possible to reduce the quantity of prescription medication required to control the condition, so limiting the side-effects that are associated with long term use of mainstream epileptic treatments. We can provide veterinary surgeons with our Veterinary Technical Sheet on the use of these tablets in the treatment of epilepsy, and also have clinical data and reports that can be sent direct to veterinary surgeons on request.
