Therapy Dogs: Seizure Detection

Toni Brown-Griffin spent years of her life housebound due to severe seizures. Her husband was prepared to quit his job and stay home to take care of her full time when she met her first therapy dog.

It’s just fascinating, and another wonderful example of dog greatness.
