Making Car Rides Safe

Hello All, I wanted to share some experience about car rides with epileptic dogs. I have a 15 year old mini red poodle named Winkle. Winkle began his seizures around age 7, would have just a few partial seizures a year. Because he never lost consciousness, the vets had a hard time diagnosing him. Hi...
