Meet Bobo! Bobo is my mischievous Portuguese Water Dog/Mini Poodle. He enjoys games of Tug-O-War, barking at nothing, and looking cute to get food. Even though Bobo is a bit of an untamed spirit, I still love him. Three years ago Bobo was diagnosed with Canine Epilepsy. He can have up to 12 seizures in a day or go 6 months without them. To say the least, battling Canine Epilepsy has not been easy.
As a pet parent, I have anxiety every time I leave home that Bobo will have a seizure when I’m away. Looking for answers, I reached out to other owners with epileptic dogs. To my surprise there are whole communities and support groups for pet parents with epileptic dogs, and they feel the same anxieties I do.
Currently there is no cure for Canine Epilepsy. As a pet parent, it’s easy to feel helpless in this situation. Refusing defeat, I set out on a design mission to create a product that would help Bobo and pets parents all over the world ease the pain of living with Canine Epilepsy. Canine Epilepsy is a condition we may have to live with, but NOT live for.
