Identification Seizure Onset Markers Recognizable by Dogs
Canine Assistants in Milton, GA by Tib Holland
Canine Assistants trains seizure response dogs for individuals who have epilepsy. Through a mechanism that has not been well researched many of the dogs develop the ability to recognize a seizure is oncoming, some as far out as 30 minutes prior to onset. Our supposition is that dogs are not picking up on physical cues from the individual, but rather on a unique odor from either exhaled breath or perspiration. We will use this information to identify seizure markers.
