What Is Epilepsy

  •  Epilepsy is a neurological disorder — a physical condition — which causes sudden bursts of hyperactivity in the brain. Here is an explanation that will help those who are learning about epilepsy or maybe they or a loved one has recently diagnosed with epilepsy.
  • What Is A Seizure Alert Dog?
  • A seizure alert dog can forewarn their owner that a seizure is coming. My dog Rocky has a 7-19 minute lead time on mine. I can’t stop them but at lest I can get to safety and do not have to have it in front of others, if I am in a public place.
  • There is also a seizure response dog’s that alert those around their owner once the seizure has started.
  • VNS: Vagus Nerve Stimulation
  • Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) involves periodic mild electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve in the neck by a surgically implanted device similar to a heart pacemaker.
  • VNS has been found effective in controlling some epilepsies when anti-epileptic drugs have been inadequate, their side effects intolerable, or neurosurgery has not been an option. In some cases, VNS has also been effective in stopping seizures.
