It's been very exciting around here! It's been hard to keep it quiet! But, we can now announce another big step in our "Live Gib Strong" K-9 Epilepsy Awareness campaign - treats!
That's right, all our canine furpals...treats! A dog's favorite word! We know your ears are perked and we have some cute head tips just waiting to hear the rest of our news!
So, I am so thrilled to present...
Here's our official announcement:
"Gibbie Snacks" are made by House Wolf K-9 Dog Biscuits, a part of the Edelweiss Bakery & Cafe in Vermont, good ol' USA! Yes, these treats are freshly made with all healthy and wholesome ingredients. The fabulous baking and creative team of Ralf and Ken of House Wolf were inspired by our Epi-Husky Gibson and researched healthy diets for Epi-dogs. They specially formulated "Gibbie Snacks" with the Epi-dog in mind!
At first glance, we fell in love with the House Wolf "Gibbie Treats" label as they included Gibson's cartoon version from our What's Wrong With Gibson? Learning About K-9 Epilepsy illustratred children's book!

Are you ready??? For every bag of "Gibbie Snacks" ordered, House Wolf will donate $1.00 to The Wally Foundation for Canine Epilepsy!
The Wally Foundation's mission is:
"To assist owners of idiopathic epileptic dogs, dog rescue groups and animal shelters to afford medications and treatments related to Canine Epilepsy. The Wally Foundation will strive to be a resource for canine epilepsy, and support research into more effective treatments and a possible cure in canines and humans alike."
"The Wally Foundation hopes and believes that no owner should have to choose between food on the table or needed medications for their beloved dog, nor should any adult or child have to say 'Good-bye' to their furry loved one for lack of support, education, or resources."
"The treatment of Canine Epilepsy can be burdensome and expensive. It requires a self-less commitment to a willingness to treat an epileptic dog. Some dogs are well controlled and live a full life while others have their lives cut short. The treatment of epilepsy begins to take over your life, and requires constant vigilance and a strict adherence to medication schedules and protocols. This is the reality of living with an epileptic dog. It is also the reason The Wally Foundation operates, to offer support, assistance, and to raise awareness of this horrible disease."We here at the FiveSibes are so honored and pleased that House Wolf is not only supporting Canine Epilepsy Awareness by developing a treat specially formulated with the Epi-dog in mind, naming it after our beautiful Epi-Husky Gibson, but also for jumping right in to assist other Epi-dogs through donating to The Wally Foundation!
Through wonderful, thoughtful, caring, and selfless actions such as these...maybe one day no dog will ever go without the treatment it needs...no dog will ever face being euthanized because a parent can't afford medications...and we all pray that one day...Canine Epilepsy will no longer exist. Until then, the more we bring awareness to Canine Epilepsy and seizure disorders and how dogs can, and do, live full lives...the better those lives will be! It really takes a community to make this happen...and I'm so proud to be part of such a wonderful, caring pet community! Together...we DO make a difference in the lives of these amazing warrior dogs.
