Purple Day® Around The World 2021 Virtual Epilepsy Education Conference

Dogs with Canine Epilepsy can ~and DO~live full, happy lives!

FiveSibes is not a company, but rather the name for my five Siberian Huskies! It is also a website and social media source of information on and about Siberian Huskies and Canine Epilepsy as one of my FiveSibes, Gibson, was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy shortly after his third birthday. Gibson is the inspiration behind my books and articles on the topic, as well as the FiveSibes #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness & Educational Campaign that provides others who have dogs with epilepsy (Epi-dogs) and are not sure what to do or where to turn. We provide important information, books, posters, and resources to help guide people to the right places for information and to let them know they are not alone, and that dogs with Canine Epilepsy can and DO live happy full lives with a lot of love and some special care, just like our Gibson! In 2018, I am proud to have been invited to team up with Purple Day® Every Day presented by The Anita Kaufmann Foundation to bring this information and more as part of our #Paws4Purple educational initiative.
