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.

The Epi Guardian Angels have all “been there.” We know the devastation of standing by helplessly while the love of your life is in the throes of a seizure. We know, too, how loving and caring for an epi turns your life upside down, how sometimes friends or even family members cannot understand your devotion and commitment to 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.

Please understand that we are not vets or canine health professionals. Our support should not be considered a substitute for professional veterinary care, which every epileptic dog needs. If your epi is having an emergency, please take him/her to an emergency clinic immediately. We care deeply about you and your epi, but we are not where you should turn first in an emergency situation.

The Epi Guardian Angels understand that every epi parent sometimes needs support, a few words of encouragement, and advice based on reliable, proven information. For this reason we have created an e-mail support system just for you.

We ask only that you first go through the Table of Contents carefully, reading every article that applies to you and your dog. You will find that our website will answer many of your questions, as it contains a wealth of information. Please also check the frequently asked questions page, as it will help you find answers to many of your questions.
