A veterinary technician at North Carolina State University developed an online survey that will be completed by owners of epileptic pets.

Julie Nettifee-Osborne, RVT, BS, VTS (Neurology), created the survey under the direction of Karen Munana, DVM, MS, with the intention of shedding more light on the disorder.

The 59-question survey collects owner comments on the types and frequency of seizures their animals experience, the cause, any medications used to control seizures and the treatment costs. A quality of life assessment for the treated animal is included.

The survey may be found online here. The survey was scheduled to be posted until April 15.
