Your pet is a big part of the family, and Trinity Pet Hospital in Laguna Hills, CA, wants to help you take the best possible care of them for the long term. That can be more challenging if your pet has chronic conditions, such as epilepsy or another type of seizure disorder, but good care can make a big difference in their quality of life. Read below to see how our pet hospital can help you with pet seizures and epilepsy.
Start with a Pet Exam
To provide your pet with a diagnosis, they'll need an exam. Other tests are often used to diagnose issues like epilepsy, but a pet exam is where it starts. You can learn about your pet's basic health and other necessary tests before a diagnosis is complete. That gets them started on a treatment program.
Treatment for Chronic Conditions
Especially for serious issues like seizures and epilepsy, treating your pet for a chronic condition is vital. Untreated health problems can lead to a lower quality of life, and could put them at risk for falls and other harm. Seizures can also be severe in untreated pets, leading to additional health issues and a declining ability to do the things they enjoy.
Seizures and Epilepsy Treatment Options
If your pet is diagnosed with epilepsy or seizures, treatment options exist. Medications are available that can help reduce or eliminate seizures and keep chronic conditions like epilepsy under much better control. These medications are generally safe and effective for most pets with seizure disorders, and we can help you find what works best for your pet.
Pet Wellness Is Our Priority
Well-controlled epilepsy reduces the number and severity of any seizures they might have, so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy together. Whether you like going on outdoor adventures or on the couch, you want your pet to feel well and happy.
