Dogs have the power to smell epileptic seizures

Mar 29, 2019 11:37 IST

Scientists from the University of Rennes in France have revealed that dogs can smell epileptic seizures and could be trained to warn owners about the same. The research was published in the journal Scientific Reports and five dogs were trained to recognise the smell of sweat from a patient having an epileptic seizure. The results of the study concluded that seizures, regardless of their type, are associated with a specific smell. The new research hopes that dogs could be used to help patients in such situations.
