Diabetic Alert Dogs - A Free Informational Seminar
with Rita Martinez CPDT-KA

Diabetic Alert Dogs, or DADs, are service dogs that are trained to notify their diabetic handlers when their blood glucose levels are low or high, often before glucose meters are able to detect the changes. These service dogs can be invaluable aids for diabetics who are in constant danger of life threatening lows and highs despite regular BG monitoring. DADs are trained to alert even while their handlers are sleeping or driving.

This seminar will provide information to medical professionals and others who are familiar with the challenges that accompany diabetes, but may not be familiar with the service that diabetic alert dogs provide.

Topics will include:

>>    Who is a suitable human candidate for a DAD?
>>    How will a DAD help with disease control?
>>    Has science proven that dogs can detect changes in blood glucose?
>>    Can I use a dog instead of a glucose meter?
>>    Will I have to test less often?
