Helping your Laforadog

Alfie - LaforadogSadly there is no cure for Lafora but as an owner, naturally you’ll want to do everything you can to help reduce the severity of the symptoms.

Lafora symptoms are caused by of the gradual build up of insoluble platelets of a starch-like substance in cellsĀ  interfering with neurological systems.
