Here are a few of the many comments regarding Korie's video
that we have received from all over the world.
{All Over the world}

January 2008, Australia . . . I have learnt so much from it. My biggest worry was that every time I read anyting about seizures it said nothing about the fact that the dog can stop breathing but your video was so informative & it did say the dog can stop breathing for a short time. . . For Korie I will never forget her & she will be in my thoughts from this day forward.
September 2007, England I showed the video to my work colleges as part of an Epilepsy presentation that I put together and your video made all the difference. People were able to SEE exactly what animals go through when they have a seizure. . .This video is a credit to you and I'm sure Korie would of been very thank full for you being there to help her through it.
August 2007, Virginia The video was a wonderful documentary. I was very impressed with the discussion on epilepsy and its causes, and the non-judemental stance for the breeders. I think it has a powerful message. Thanks again. . .ATCA Health Co-Chair
March 2007, New Zealand I have shown Korie's video to my Veterinary Nursing students, none of whom had seen a seizure previously. They and I are very grateful for the effort you have gone to in making and distributing the video of Korie, and we found it very touchintg as well as informative. Many Thanks.
January 2003, Red Bank, NJ I am a veterinary neurologist in Red Bank New Jersey. . . I realized that I saw a videotape of your dog while I was a veterinary student at Cornell from 1991-1995. Dr. deLahunta showed us your tape and it was an extremely valuable tool for me as a veterinary student. Now as a veterinary neurologist I was hoping to be able to get a copy of your tape to share with clients that are going through some of the same issues you already have encountered.
December 2002, Greentown, PA I would like to thank you for the Canine Epilepsy video. . . my project was very successful. . . the video was very helpful, and many of my classmates became interested in seizures in animals.
September 2001, Melborne Austrailia Thank you very much for sending me Korie's video. My presentation, which I gave on Friday 21 September with two colleagues, was titled "Seizures: Diagnosis and Management". It was a major component of my assessment for my Small Animal Medicine elective in my final year of Veterinary Science. Korie's story was perfect to illustrate the process of managing a dog with seizures. Korie's video was very accurate and professionally made. As a veterinary student, I have never seen a dog have a seizure and although the footage of Korie having a seizure was unsettling, it was very valuable footage from an educational point of view. I have passed on Kories video to the Senior Lecturer in Small Animal Medicine who gives our Clinical Neurology lecture series at Melborne University. I am sure he will find Korie's video a valuable tool in educating students in the Veterinary Science course.
September 2001, Winslow, Maine What can I say? The video is the greatest tool in educating others about our Epi-Kids. . . No words can express the gratitude I feel having found someone as dedicated as you in helping to someday put an end to all of this.
June 2000, Houston, TX I can't tell you how much you and Korie have helped us. The boys were stunned and we all cried as we watched and heard all what you all have been through.
May 2000, New Rochelle, NY I can't thank you enough for your extremely informative and sensitive video. You are doing a great service to the EPI community through your video and website.
April 2000, Des Plaines, IL I do recommend that video tape ... watch it with the people who have never seen a seizure so that you can talk about it.
December 1999, North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND This movie is a great teaching tool and I plan to give it to the school so they can use it to teach future students. . . I just hope that with your movie and my presentation, that my classmates will take something away with them, and continue the chain of helping others understand canine epilepsy.
November 1999, Seattle, WA I appreciate your efforts to educate and support people like me.
November 1999, Essex, England . . . you and Korie have made such an impact over here in Great Britain.
November 1999, Switzerland . . . I can not express enough how impressed I am how you have done that video, congratulation. (sic) Of course it brought tears to my eyes by watching poor Kori (sic) when seizing. The whole world appreciates it alot.
August 1999, Atlanta, GA Everyone got to watch her dog thrash and bite and then walk into things! I know ... not a pretty sight but the Dvorak's would be proud that their video is being used by such an esteemed individual. (reference to Dr. Thomas DVM).

January 1997 Richmond, CA I think that the tape gives insight to what people and their dogs live through without being overly graphic. Great job ...
January 1997 Florida State University Talahassee, FL You also did an excellent job of presenting the implications of epilepsy for breeders. You do not in any way condemn the breeders for unintentionally producing dogs with epilepsy; yet you drive home the importance of taking this into consideration ...
December 1996 Cincinnati, OH The tape should be viewed by all Breeders certainly not confined to Schnauzers. For that matter not confined to epilepsy. All inherited conditions must be allowed the light of day.

November 1996 Amsterdam, NY I found it very well done. At every point you could have easily been talking about my dog.
October 1996 Cornell University Ithaca, NY The video tape that you recently sent to the college of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University was forwarded to me. I want to tell you that it is an excellent production. It is very personal and at the same time very scientific and accurate. It is an ideal teaching aid to have available to a client who is experiencing the same trauma that you folks did when Korie developed her seizures.
