Canine Hope for Diabetics Helps Provide Safety and Independence for Kids

Diabetic service dogs also bring unconditional friendship

Aside from the support that a diabetic service dog brings, they bring unconditional friendship and love, which can go a long way inĀ  helping someone learn how to live with their disease. For a child diagnosed with diabetes, there are times when living with a chronic illness can make them feel lonely. They may feel like outsiders, especially when they cannot play with their friends or eat certain things at a birthday party.

Thankfully, service dogs do not judge, making them the best friend a child can have. They can also help diabetics navigate potentially harmful environments, like birthday parties.
