Very treatable, once you find the correct dosage of the meds needed. Your vet will know.

Hi Dev,

My mom has a dog with epilepsy. Ask your vet for the right medication for epilepsy in dogs - there are 2 options - in liquid form or a pill every day. Since the dog has been on medication, the attacks are fewer and less frequent. Your vet will be able to supply you with the exact names for the liquid and pills.
