The epi puppy is a soft plush puppy dog fanny pack used for carrying your epipen. The epi puppy has an adjustable strap and a velcro enclosure for easy access.
Not only is the epi puppy practical, but it is also kid friendly. Children who are faced with life threatening allergies will find it much easier to wear a puppy rather than an oversized fanny pack or backpack.
Many parents carry their child’s epipen in their purse or jacket. This is appropriate for small children who are too young to be responsible for their epipen. Once the child enters school they have to keep their epipen with them at all times. It is not ok to keep it in the teacher’s desk or in the office. An allergic reaction can turn deadly in a matter of minutes.
The name epi puppy is embroidered on the side of the dog. One of my goals for the epi puppy is for it to be recognized as an epipen carrier. I would like to raise awareness about the seriousness of food allergies and the importance of carrying ones’ epipen.
The original style is a chocolate lab. Look forward to other dogs and animals to be added to the line called epi pals.
