What Are Diabetic Service Dogs?

Diabetic service dogs are a special type of assistance dog that is trained to help people with diabetes. While each dog is different, they all share the common goal of assisting their human partners in managing their condition. The most common task that diabetic service dogs perform is alerting their owners when their blood sugar levels get too high or too low. For example, if a person with diabetes starts to experience a hypoglycemic episode, their service dog will sense it and notify them so that they can take steps to bring their blood sugar levels back to normal. In addition to alerting their owners to changes in blood sugar levels, diabetic service dogs can also be trained to retrieve medication, help with injections, and provide physical support. As a result, these amazing animals can play a vital role in helping people with diabetes live full and independent lives.
