Dogs may be able to help those struggling with epileptic seizures, according to new research.

A study published in Scientific Reports found dogs can be trained to detect a smell that is linked to epileptic seizures. Researchers say all the dogs they trained were able to discriminate a seizure odor.

Researchers say the study shows the potential for dogs to help those who suffer from epileptic seizures.
