Medical Alert Assistance Dogs
Our Medical Alert Assistance Dogs support individuals with complex health conditions who have limited awareness of an impending life-threatening medical event.
Using their amazing sense of smell, dogs can be trained to identify minute odour changes emitted prior to an emergency and alert the person to take preventative action.
Our dogs are currently working for people with:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS)
- Addisons Disease
- Severe allergies
- Other endocrine disorders
- Episodes of sudden health deterioration
By assisting individuals with their condition, our dogs help reduce 999 calls and hospital admissions, giving people and their families/carers greater confidence and independence, enabling them to lead a full and happy life.
