Narcoleptic dogs

Here is a nice video of cataplexy in dogs (via National Sleep Foundation/Dr. Mignot):

Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder that affects about 1 in 2,000 people in the U.S., but did you know that it also occurs in animals? Courtesy of the Center for Narcolepsy at Stanford School of Medicine, NSF has published footage on YouTube of narcoleptic episodes in dogs with a narration by Dr. Emmanuel Mignot. Watch it now!
