A nutritional supplement for cats and dogs containing Taurine, Tyrosine, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin B compounds that help to maintain a healthy nervous system.
Nutritional supplementing is important for animals with epilepsy, EPITAUR 500 is formulated to provide optimum levels of specific deficient nutrients that are normally associated in epilepsy. High concentrations of taurine are found in the central nervous system, taurine is an essential building block for all other amino acids. Taurine has a protective effect on the brain, particulary if the brain is dehydrated. In the nutritional world taurine is used in cases of anxiety, epilepsy, hyperactivity, poor brain function, and most importantly seizures. In young healthy animals taurine is found in concentrations up to four times greater in the brain than in those of older animals. It may be that a deficiency of taurine in the developing brain is involved in seizures.

Not suitable for catsIs manufactured taurine and so unsuitable for cats. Only discovered after my cats epilepsy got out of control.
Our dog started having seizures inititially every two or three months, but they gradually increased in frequency until - in the New Year - he was having 4 or 5 a week. He has been on Epitaur for 10 days now, and has only had one very mild seizure in that time. What an improvement...!
