Diabetic Service Dogs - they can smell a diabetic’s blood sugar dropping or spiking out of range early, so that they can provide their owner with an alert in advance of a crisis. “Alert” their owner to the onset of a change in their body’s chemistry and to keep alerting them until the condition is corrected or until they receive the help they need. Most can: Pick up and carry objects such as juice bottles. Retrieve cordless phones.Test breath for low blood sugar.
