What Do I Do About My Epi-Dog's Medications With the Time Change?

  November marks Epilepsy Awareness Month and it also marks the end to Daylight Saving Time, a time for clocks to "fall back" in many areas on November 7th at 2 AM EST.       A question I am asked a lot, and do see often asked in dog epilepsy groups, is, "What do I do  about my dog's medication when the clocks go back?"   If your Epi-dog (dog with Epilepsy) is on specifically timed medications, you will want to adjust his schedule a few days ahead of time, or at least for the first day of the new time change, stagger the dosage times.    My FiveSibes Epi-tip is actually a simple formula for helping adjust your Epi-dog's medication doses to keep it as close to "normal" as possible.

The founding Huskies of my FiveSibes.  And now they are together forever, snuggling amongst the stars, but always in my heart.    “Love is forever and always remembered.” ~Ken Poirot         The Linky tool will open all week for you to join us in the Blog Hop and share pics
