Canine Seizure Control

MILEPOST 3— CANINE SEIZURE CONTROL (SERVICE DOG IN THE FRONT SEAT)

A Little History

The majority of this was written before 1-27-2014. Buddy’s a beautiful, yellow Labrador retriever and is probably the gentlest creature on the face of the earth. He was bred and trained at Sunshine Service Dogs, Inc., in Luck, Wisconsin. Director Lori Peper-Rucks trains dogs for hearing, mobility, sensitive-detection, law enforcement, and search and rescue.

Buddy was born in January of 2000. In the first year of his life, he lived with a foster family who took the responsibility of feeding and caring for him. Beginning in his second year, he lived at Sunshine and began the intensive training needed to become a service dog.

Buddy is sponsored by the Grantsburg Animal Hospital. This means that he receives basic care free of charge, and food and medications at a special discounted rate. His vet is Doctor Pete Magnuson. Cost for dog food made me go with Purina Dog Chow, Buddy didn’t seem to mind.
