Epilepsy Tracker

RVC Pet Epilepsy Tracker

Help us track and manage your pet’s seizures more accurately.  The Royal Veterinary College in the United Kingdom has developed a seizure App that allows us to track your pet’s seizure frequency, medications and provide more consistent feedback about control.  It is a great way to improve communication between you and the Neurology Department at Pieper Memorial.  Please keep reading for easy instructions to get started!
