A Nestle PURINA® hosted round table event brought together 15 independent and recognised specialists in the field of canine neurology to discuss the management of epilepsy in dogs. They also touched upon the influence of diet on epilepsy and the role it can play in the management of this disorder.

Participants acknowledged epilepsy as one of the most prevalent neurological conditions in dogs, with one of the main concerns based on side effects of current medications as well as issues with owner compliance.
