Can the Total Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse Trigger a Seizure in Dogs With Epilepsy?

Wolf and Harley love laying out under the full moon! Update: November 6, 2022. Once again, we will be having a "Blood Moon" full lunar eclipse that will take place on Tuesday, November 8th , and this type of lunar activity (and with the recent Standard Time Change), could pose as triggers to dogs with Epilepsy. Not to say all Epi-dogs will be affected by both of these changes, but there are some who are very sensitive to changes of any type. So here at FiveSibes, we say best to be informed and be prepared "just in case." How to Prepare? Basically, it's to be prepared *for possible seizure activity* by having your safety precautions and First Aid in place. Prior to the eclipse, have a chat with your veterinarian, and do a little pre-planning, as you would for any out-of-the-ordinary situation or event that could have an adverse effect on your Epi-dog.

The Power of Puppy Love With The Pupsters on a #FiveSibes Flashback Friday!

Our FiveSibes Pupsters! Ahhh, is there anything sweeter than puppy breath? Today, we are fondly flashing back to when our Pupsters, who are now 10, were just little two-month-old pups! The bond they formed as puppies and have kept over the years is just amazing. What a joy to see these siblings always have the love and security of each other, never to be separated! They warm my heart today just as they did when they first joined our family! What a joy! "Happiness is a warm puppy." ~Charles M. Schulz "Joy is raising three puppies together!" ~Dorothy Wills-Raftery I have heard folks say "you shouldn't raise littermates together" - and I say hogwash to that! It has been one of the greatest experiences for my puppies and me! As a matter of fact, I just recently penned an article called "Puppy Power: Yes, You Can Raise Littermates Together" in my monthly column over at 4Knines blog.
