Veterinary Highlights: Has Your Dog Just Been Diagnosed With Epilepsy?

New clinical trial offers free medical care for qualifying dogs.

If your dog is suspected of having idiopathic epilepsy, is at least four months old and have not received more than seven days of anti-seizure medication, they might qualify for this study.

The trial includes:

  • Free* diagnostic tests and evaluation: All tests required by the study protocol, such as blood work, are free.
  • Free** treatment:  Your dog will either be given the test drug or a placebo; however, patients in the study are twice as likely to receive the test drug.
  • Up to $150 in gift cards: By participating in the study, dog owners may also receive up to $150 in gift cards.

If you live near a trial site, your veterinarian may already be aware of the location of a trial site in your area. Or, either you or your veterinarian may call our toll-free number, 1-888-598-7125 ext. 207, to learn if there's a trial site near you. Even if there is not a site currently in your area, there may be one soon, so we encourage you or your veterinarian to call us to learn if your dog may qualify.
