This is a video of Poppy, a small pup with a big job. Poppy alerts her human, Shannon, 15-20 minutes before she experiences a seizure. This gives Shannon time to get to a safe place so that she doesn’t hurt herself during one of her grand mal seizures.
In the video, you can see Poppy paw at her human to alert her and lick her pawrent’s mouth to clear away any saliva and vomit caused by the seizure. Choking on saliva and vomit can result in death, so this task is crucial to Shannon’s survival.
