Seizure-Prone Hunting Dog Canine Gear & Accessory First-Aid Guide Launched

K9Pointers, a website dedicated to educating readers about seizure-prone hunting dogs, recently released a guide recommending some essential gear and accessories seizure-prone hunting dog owners should have with them when out in the field.

The latest guide highlights several different specialized pieces of equipment designed to protect, treat, and resuscitate seizure-prone hunting dogs. The expert also shares some preventative measures dog owners can take to minimize the risk of their canine companions having seizures while outdoors.

According to Today’s Veterinary Practice, seizures occur in as many as 5% of all dogs in America. While not a huge number relative to other dog-related afflictions, seizures can still be a tremendous source of worry, stress, and fear for both dogs and their owners. With its guide, K9Pointers is equipping dog owners with the tools they need to help their dogs should the unthinkable happen.

“When you’re out in the field with your hunting companion, being prepared is key,” explains Heather Owens, author of the guide. “The right gear can mean the difference between a minor incident and a major emergency. In our new guide, we show you what that gear looks like and how it can make hunting with your dog safer.”

One of the most critical pieces of gear the guide recommends dog owners get is seizure detection technology. Seizure detection technology is a collar designed to identify irregularities indicative of a seizure. The device does this by monitoring the dog’s heart rate, body temperature, activity levels, and location. If one of these metrics changes drastically, it sends an alert to the owner, prompting them to intervene.

Another piece of gear K9Pointers suggests dog owners have on hand is a comprehensive canine first-aid kit. Ideally, the kit should include any seizure medications and syringes for administration, dosage instructions, honey or Karo syrup, a thermometer, a muzzle, and a blanket. While most of these items are intended for the dog, essentials like the muzzle and blanket also help protect the owner from snapping and flailing.

In addition to these two essential pieces of gear, other items that may be useful while out in the wild include padded high-visibility vests, GPS collars, and safety harnesses.

“Caring for a seizure-prone hunting dog requires a combination of the right gear, knowledge, and preparation,” said Owens. “By equipping yourself with seizure alert devices, GPS collars, and a well-stocked first-aid kit, you can help ensure the safety of your four-legged hunting companion.”
