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...!
