How Dogs Sniff Out Seizures

Dogs can detect epileptic seizures up to 45 minutes before they occur. But we didn’t know how until recently, when French researchers teamed up with Medical Mutts, a U.S. based organization that trains seizure alert dogs. In a study published last week in Scientific Reports, the researchers reveal that dogs can detect seizures through smell. In some cases, the pooches were 100% accurate in picking up the odor of a seizure. That’s thanks to the incredible canine nose, which can sniff out odor molecules in the parts per trillion.
