A new study - - conducted by the Royal Veterinary College (RVC, Rowena Packer, Gareth Jones) and the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover (TiHo, Holger Volk), has identified improving drug management and the development of new epilepsy management options as key research priorities for dog owners, general practice veterinarians and specialist veterinary neurologists in treating idiopathic epilepsy in dogs. Priorities differed between vets and owners, with owners prioritising day-to-day quality of life issues for their dog, such as behavioural issues or the side effects from medications. In contrast, the vet groups prioritised clinical issues such as identifying the genetic causes of epilepsy and how different types of seizures are classified.

These findings provide valuable insight and highlight the importance of ensuring owners views integrated into the direction of future research planning. It will also ensure future research more effectively improves the quality of life of both affected animals and their owners.
