Dogs can detect epileptic seizure odor, study indicates

0
Dogs have been shown to sniff out an array of diseases such as Parkinson’s and diabetes, and there have been reports that they can also predict when a person will have a seizure. However, this ability to sniff and predict a seizure has never been thoroughly examined and there has been no real evidence demonstrated in scientific literature, up until very recently.

A novel study published in Scientific Reports has indicated that dogs are able to detect a scent linked to epileptic seizures. The research team from the University of Rennes (France) hopes that these findings can lead to ways to predict when people will have a seizure.
