Epileptic Spaniel - monitoring device??

Postby Mike Loveless on Wed 31 Jul, 2013 9:22 pm

I have a 6 year old epileptic Spaniel and her fits are becoming more common.

Has anyone heard of a device that would remotely monitor her and set of an alarm if she had a fit? Possibly some sort of collar?

I have seen such things for humans but nothing for dogs?

Cheers

Mike

If you're in the house, i.e. at night, would a baby alarm not work to wake you up?

Not sure but ww will try.

I have spotted several devices like this:

This is for humans but I wondered if one as a collar would work? I am emailing the company to find out their view.

It looks quite large but worth asking.

I still think a baby alarm would do the job just as well - unless you're a really heavy sleeper. :flowers:

Not sure when you want this for -

For nights I was worrying too much when Rusty was bad so I bought a baby monitor from ebay - It worked well but I still couldn't sleep worrying about him. So I just cut out the middle man and sleep him in our room. I hate this condition. Good luck. xx
