The Epi Guardian Angels (individual biographies below) are a group of caring people across the USA and the world who live with dogs who have epilepsy. We have collected medical information that is viable and tested—information that can slow down seizures, make them less frequent, or in a few cases stop seizures completely. Our goals are education and support: We want to help educate owners of epileptic dogs and their vets by providing easy access to articles on canine epilepsy published by veterinarians and neurologists, and transcripts of interviews with noted veterinarians. We supplement this information by sharing our own experiences with proven, veterinary-approved protocols, and through our unique one-on-one support system.

your epi. Dealing with seizures requires tremendous courage, love, energy, and
patience. Searching endlessly for information and help takes Herculean
perseverance. And all while, you have to try to keep your chin up, to keep from
breaking down completely.

epi, but we are not where you should turn first in an emergency situation.

Angels understand that every epi parent sometimes needs support, a few words of
encouragement, and advice based on reliable, proven information. For this reason
