ADHD is a behavioural condition defined by inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

Symptoms typically appear at an early age and become more noticeable as a child grows.

According to the NHS, the causes of ADHD are not known but the condition has been shown to run in families. 

It comes after Katie was reportedly left ‘devastated’ and ‘in bits’ after losing her pet Chihuahua Captain while on holiday recently. 

The star lost the pup during a getaway to ‘millionaires playground’ Sandbanks in Dorset with fiancé Carl Woods, 32. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie was in bits. She thought Captain would be fine off his lead as they were staying on a friend’s private property which was very secure but he managed to run off’. 

They went on to tell the publication: ‘Katie was devastated thinking she has lost him for good, or that he might get run over.’

After eight hours of searching the former Celebrity Big Brother housemate then received a phone call to say Captain had been found.

The pup had been taken to a local vet and they were able to identify him via his microchip. 

However Katie has come under fire in the past with a Change.Org petition reaching over 14,000 signatures in a bid to ban her from owning further animals. 

She was previously slammed by animal welfare charities in November 2021 after welcoming guard dog Okra into the family after dog Rolo was suffocated in her home, while her Alsatian Sparkle was mowed down in February 2020, in shocking echoes of the death of her dog Queenie, who was killed in 2018. 

Katie later revealed her shock after she was illegally advised to give her late puppy Rolo cannabis oil before he ‘suffocated to death in an armchair’.

WHAT IS ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a behavioural condition defined by inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

It affects around five per cent of children in the US. Some 3.6 per cent of boys and 0.85 per cent of girls suffer in the UK. 

Symptoms typically appear at an early age and become more noticeable as a child grows. These can also include:

  • Constant fidgeting 
  • Poor concentration
  • Excessive movement or talking
  • Acting without thinking
  • Little or no sense of danger 
  • Careless mistakes
  • Forgetfulness 
  • Difficulty organising tasks
  • Inability to listen or carry out instructions 

Most cases are diagnosed between six and 12 years old. Adults can also suffer, but there is less research into this.

ADHD’s exact cause is unclear but is thought to involve genetic mutations that affect a person’s brain function and structure.

Premature babies and those with epilepsy or brain damage are more at risk. 

ADHD is also linked to anxiety, depression, insomnia, Tourette’s and epilepsy.  

There is no cure. 

A combination of medication and therapy is usually recommended to relieve symptoms and make day-to-day life easier.

The late French bulldog, which was bought as a present for her daughter Princess’ 13th birthday, fell asleep under an electric chair after having the non-psychoactive cannabis derivative and later ‘suffocated’ after the family’s nanny sat on the chair. 

Katie reportedly gave away the pooch to a member of the crew of a recent TV show she has been filming.

French Bulldog Precious was a gift to the teen after her old dog Rolo got stuck under an armchair and died – before being found by Harvey’s carer.

Shortly after this incident, which occurred in 2019, the petition was launched.

Katie told the Mirror that she was unaware that it is illegal to give dogs the substance without a veterinary prescription, in accordance with the The Veterinary Medicines Regulations 2013. 

The description for the petition read: ‘A puppy has died in the last 24 hours in Katie prices care she bought this puppy for her 13 year old child 3 weeks ago. Which was killed in an accident no one witnessed.

‘In the last 5 years more animals have died from lack of care. Horses, dogs. cats, lizards, hedgehogs. This isn’t a single family tragedy. It’s a common thing in Katie price home. 2 dogs have been ran over. 

It goes on: ‘Puppies were found dead drowning in a neglected swimming pool. A horse was run over on a motorway. Animals just go missing in her home never to been seen again. Her guard dog broke into her neighbours garden and killed their chickens.  

‘A dog trained to attack people. Also ripped her cat apart. The neglect seen on her show my crazy life. Cat poo with mould growing on it. Dog poo just left on the floor. 

‘Clothes dumped all over the place. Alger growing in her pool where her puppy drowned. She jokes about her mucky mansion. But it ain’t a joke that animals are dying from her lack of care. Being left alone to meet untimely deaths and nobody is saying enough is enough and carry on selling her animals. 

‘3 weeks ago bull dog puppy named Rolo was in her care. Nobody knows including her how it died. We need to stop this now no more animals need to die.’ 

MailOnline contacted Katie’s reps at the time for comment.
