Is a diet trial that requires 5 visits to RVC in Herts and a diet over a year. Recruiting any breed of dog with idiopathic epilepsy but they need to have not experienced status or cluster seizures (this is because the diet has been shown to work in more severe cases of epilepsy so this trial is specifically looking at dogs with less severe epilepsy).
