Epiphen Tablets (Phenobarbitone) 60mg
Epiphen Tablets (Phenobarbitone) 60mg is an oral tablet and is used in the control of epilepsy in dogs.
Epilepsy is a disorder in which animals will repeatedly experience seizures (fits). It is most commonly first noticed in animals between 6 months to 5 years of age but it could still effect animals at any age.
Epiphen Tablets are a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received. Please follow the instructions given by your vet.
Epiphen Tablets are a white, circular tablet and are supplied in individual 60mg tablets and is also available in 30mg tablets. Epiphen is also available in a solution which is predominantly used in dogs less than 12kg and who need a more accurate dose of medication.
The tablets are stocked in pots of 1000 and when smaller quantities are ordered, the tablets are counted into brown containers for dispatch.
The dosage required for this medication will vary depending on the severity of the disorder. When starting this treatment, dogs are normally given a dose of 2-5mg per kg bodyweight per day. This dose should be divided and administered twice daily. Your Vet will then gradually increase the dose if necessary to find the most suitable dose for your animal.
Do not use Epiphen Tablets in pregnant animals or animals with impaired hepatic function.
Do not change or stop giving Epiphen suddenly as this could cause a state of continuous seizuring.
Please note we must RECEIVE the original prescription BEFORE we can dispatch your order.

Very impressed with delivery and service/ price of good bought. Liked the promotion of the adaption diffuser pack which we had not intended to buy.
Delivered as quoted. For 5 stars, I would have liked to include the medicine with the food order & have 1 delivery.
The order was sent with their usual speed and efficiency, I have used them for several years now and they have only made one small error (which was swiftly rectified). I cannot find fault as far as my orders are concerned and I will continue to deal with them for all my pets requirements.
instructions are easy to follow on line and have previously ordered by phone and found everyone extremely efficient and helpful and the delivery service is prompt.
Quality product at a great price - just wish a larger size was available. Promt delivery, great service. Thank you.
I would give you 5 stars but for one reason. The order was incomplete but there was no note to say that it was one of two packages. I therefore had to call you to find out that your warehouse was out of the one type of tinned dog food when the order was placed so it was going to be delivered the following Monday. I had to arrange a different delivery address as I was not going to be in and I did not receive a delivery slot text on the Monday. So a) there should have been a note in the first delivery to say more to follow and b) I should have had a delivery text for the second delivery.
