My dog has started to have eplipetic fits

Species: dog | Category: other | Submitted: 16 April 2007 08:49PM | viewed 4903 times
Q Debi asks:

He has had 6 so far, they only last for a few minutes and then he is fully recovered, he is 15 years old and the RSPCA have told me that at his age it is common and its very expensive to treat for what little time he may have left. What should I do?

Q Our vet says: If you feel that you would like treatment to go ahead you should discuss this with the vet; however sometimes these fits can be much more distressing for owners to watch than for the dogs themselves! It can be very difficult to stop fits occurring completely and often the most that can be hoped for with treatment is a reduction in frequency of fits. Each case should be treated individually so do go back and speak to your vet again but it may be that it is better for your dog to take the "wait and see" approach.
