A seizure response dog: Video recording of reacting behaviour during repetitive prolonged seizures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Seizure response and alerting behaviour may spontaneously develop in dogs living with children or adults with epilepsy. Some dogs can also be reliably trained to respond and anticipate seizures. We describe the case of a dog, not previously trained for assistance work, showing complex seizure response behaviour. This is the first release of a home video recording of a dog reacting to its owner's seizure.
