Veterinary pharmaceutical company Genitrix has launched a free epilepsy faxback advice service for veterinary practices prescribing Libromide.
Challenging canine epilepsy cases will be reviewed by Clare Rusbridge, a European specialist in veterinary neurology. A special form, downloadable from the Genitrix website, will enable practices to provide detailed case histories.
Launched earlier this year, Libromide is the world’s first and only licensed formulation of potassium bromide for refractory canine epilepsy.
Dr Rusbridge runs a small animal neurology referral practice based at the Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital in South London. She is board certified by the European College of Veterinary Neurology.
Commenting on the launch of the new service, Rob Watkins, Marketing Director at Genitrix, said: “When we launched Libromide, it was our goal to ensure that generalist practices, which may not deal with cases every week, were given more accurate guidance and advice on treating canine epilepsy than was possible when only unlicensed products were available.
“Our subsequent launch of the discounted blood test, the dosing wheel and now the Libromide Epilepsy Advice Service through Clare, are examples of our commitment to achieving this goal.
“The advice service is aimed specifically at practices that are finding it difficult to control seizures or which have a patient experiencing unusual side effects, even after receiving dosing advice from Genitrix. I hope that having Clare’s experience and expertise ‘on tap’ for challenging cases will prove reassuring for our customers.”
