What Causes Seizures? Important Answers for Epilepsy Awareness Month ~and~ Tips for Daylight Saving Time!

With November being Epilepsy Awareness Month, today's Flashback Friday photo is of my beautiful, sweet Epi-dog angel, Gibson, the face and inspiration behind our #FiveSibes #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness Campaign. Gibson embraced life, no mater what challenges came his way. His is a story of inspiration and hope for others who love dogs that are living with Canine Epilepsy. May they all #LiveGibStrongForever.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~Winston Churchill
This month I will be sharing and highlighting information on Canine Epilepsy to help others who are on this journey or who have dogs who are having seizures know where to turn and what to do to help their canine companion. Always remember, while it is scary to watch your beloved dog have a seizure,  you are not alone. There is much support and information out there. Not sure? Just drop me a line and I'll be happy to steer you in the right direction! 

Check out this informative video by Mercola of Dr. Karen Becker, an integrative wellness veterinarian, talking about "What Causes Seizures in Pets:"

And Don't Forget...

In many areas, it's Daylight Saving Time on Sunday when clocks fall back an hour at 2 AM. Is your dog on medications? You may want to adjust his schedule accordingly. See my past post HERE about just how to do that, especially if you have an Epi-dog to avoid possibly triggering a seizure. 

The Flashback Friday Blog Hop is brought to you by us - the FiveSibes!  We welcome our co-host Love is being Owned by a Husky! We hope you'll find a photo or video from Memory Lane, post it, and link up to our Blog Hop each Friday! If you don't catch it on Friday, you can link up any time during the week! To catch our past Flashbacks, just enter "Flashback Friday" in the search box.  Come join us! We'd love to see your pets' Flashback pics! Just grab our badge below:
