Today Marks the 1st International Epilepsy Day
Today is the very first International Epilepsy Day, and we here at FiveSibes, continue our awareness of Canine Epilepsy, and also for people who have Epilepsy.
International Epilepsy Day was created by the International Bureau For Epilepsy (IBE) and the The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE)
"This world day for epilepsy will be a major step in improving epilepsy awareness in every region of the world, and will also highlight the urgent need for increased research into epilepsy.This joint initiative of the IBE and the ILAE will be a major event celebrated across the globe in the 138 of countries in which IBE and ILAE are represented. With both IBE and ILAE in official working relations with the WHO, and with IBE in Special Consultative Status in the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations, this will make International Epilepsy Day the most prestigious epilepsy event in the world."

Coming soon will be a section on our new FiveSibes website devoted to our continued efforts for Canine Epilepsy Awareness and our message that:
Dogs can ~ and DO ~ with some special care and lots of love, live happy and active lives even with Canine Epilepsy, for however long we are blessed to have them.
