Watch dogs detect signs of epileptic seizures—using their nose

March 28, 2019 - One of these cans has an odor collected from a patient during an epileptic episode. The other 6 cans had samples from the same person while they weren’t seizing. This experiment is part of a study which shows that dogs can smell an odor produced during epileptic seizures. All previous reports of this ability were anecdotal. French scientists wanted to see if a “seizure odor” existed across all types of seizures. All the dogs in the study were able to identify the can with the seizure odor.
