Dogs Trained To Assist Diabetics

Dog noseIt is well documented that dogs have an incredible sense of smell. When properly trained, that natural sniffing ability can be channeled to provide invaluable assistance in making our lives better.

For example, a dog’s keen sense of smell can be trained to detect very subtle changes in a person’s blood sugar level. Such a talent can greatly improve the quality of life for a diabetic by providing an early alert and, thereby, hopefully avert a possible medical emergency situation.
