Diabetes isn’t always viewed as very threatening, for those with Type 1 it is truly a monster. The dreaded lows (hypoglycemia) can cause seizures, coma, and death. Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers can tell their owners when a low is approaching. For Kinz and her mom that is exactly what their Service Dog, Elvis did .
In the car on the way home.
Elvis starts his verbal ‘complaining’ (what he does when he wants my attention).
I pull over and ask I’m if we need to check and he does his nose in a touch action in the air (his low alert)…he couldn’t move much because he was buckled up in his seat.
102 with 2.4 units on board.
We say good check (knowing its a low and he is right since we were a road away from home) by the time we get home he alerts with touch again. Kinz is 80 :0) he is pretty awesome ♥ Warren Retrievers
