CANINE EPILEPSY NETWORK
Announcing the official launch of the Canine Epilepsy Network web site!
This devastating problem can affect any breed. It is our hope that this site
can provide information for those who have an epileptic dog, or have produced
this problem and the research will help concerned breeders, to eliminate this
problem from their breed, while keeping all the good traits breeders strive
This site, sponsored by the University of Missouri College of Veterinary
Medicine, provides a resource for breeders, owners, veterinarians and
researchers concerned with canine epilepsy.
The site includes:
Basic epilepsy information
An invitation to participate in Canine Health Foundation funded research into
the genetics of inherited epilepsy
Updates on the research
A discussion panel
And links to additional information
We invite you to visit the site at:
We would welcome your comments.
If you need additional information not provided in this site, or have any
questions, please contact me. Thank you in advance for sharing this
information with others in your breed!
