Our Quinn was an Epi-Warrior. He suffered seizures that were, for most of his life with us, kept under control with a careful diet and medication. We all learned how to "read" the onsets and deal with his manic focal seizures (which meant he did not fall down and twitch but rather repeatedly circled tightly, unfocused, and panting heavily). We had an emergency kit.
But Epilepsy did not disrupt Quinn's quality of life. And so it is with most pets (cats get epilepsy, too!) and people. With awareness and care, there is nothing to fear and certainly it is not a life ender.
The FiveSibes and their hu-mom, Dorothy are fierce advocates for epilepsy awareness and the White Dog Army is proud to partner with them in reaching out to make aware and educate, especially on this special day.
The White Dog Army invites you to take this quiz and leave a comment about what information most surprised you. Tomorrow, White Dog and her siblings will randomly choose one comment to win a special prize. Ready?
