Canine Epilepsy

I received some comments on my last post that some peoples dogs have epilepsy. I thought I would recognize our four  legged buddies.

Apparently canine epilepsy is the most common neurological disorder in dogs. Studies suggest that nearly 4% of dogs have epilepsy in which 14% of purebreds are affected. I’m not sure how accurate this is but I found it on a couple different sites.

I can’t imagine my dogs having to deal with that.  They mean the world to mean and it would crush me each time they had a seizure.  It kind of brings in to perspective how my parents felt every time I had a seizure.  You just never know what will happen.  I guess you just have to hope for the best and that they will come out of it

Email me your purple nails or just thumb so I can post on my blog.  Help support Epilepsy Awareness


  1. Soooo cute!! I love it :D I had a friend in high school that suffered from epilepsy. I only witnessed one episode in the time that I knew him but it left a lasting memory. I'll definitely be doing a purple mani over the weekend! Thank you for sharing :)

  2. Aww, I love this - lovely idea!!

  3. cute! one of my cats started having seizures right before he died of kidney failure.. it was the scariest thing ever, having to watch him go through that especially because I have some idea of what it's like :(

  4. This is so adorable, I will be doing this for my poor baby <3


Thank you for any comments. I read each one and love the feedback
