Medical Response Service Dogs

Medical Response Dogs provide individuals with a variety of medical diagnoses the confidence to live independently alongside providing companionship and assisting with day-to-day tasks. Some examples of tasks that Medical Response Dogs can provide are:

  • Recognizing a specific scent as a food allergy indicator;
  • Locating and alerting a specific person for assistance;
  • Triggering a medical alert device to bring EMS help;
  • Retrieving emergency medication;
  • Licking or nuzzling to bring you out of a seizure;

This can include Epilepsy, Food Allergy, Diabetes Alert, POTS and many more. Some Medical Response Dogs can alert before a medical emergency by detecting changes such as blood sugar. Most of our response training helps to manage symptoms following these situations to aid the person in recovering quickly and getting any additional help that they may need.
