DIABETIC SERVICE DOG
A service dog for diabetics is specially trained to assist people with diabetes. These dogs are trained to identify minor scent changes created by hypoglycemia or low blood sugar, and take necessary steps such as alerting medical response.
They are also trained in tracking the shifting levels of the handler’s condition, and alert the person to check blood sugar levels or take necessary medications. These dogs detect the faint changes in the scent which can’t be detected by humans, and hence prove to be worthy companions for people with diabetes.
