When should epilepsy be treated?
This should be discussed with your vet, but some guidelines for treatment are:
- Two or more epileptic seizures within a 6 month period
- If seizures occur in clusters (several seizures in one day) or are very severe
- When undesirable behaviour following a seizure is considered severe (e.g. aggression, blindness) or lasts longer than 24 hours
- The epileptic seizure frequency and/or duration is increasing and/or seizure severity is getting worse
