Dogs As Doctors? How Your Pet Could Be A Mirror Of Your Own Health

Monitoring Blood Sugar Levels

Trained guide dogs alert human companions with type 1 diabetes that their blood sugar levels are off, according to Animal Planet. This occurs before the person notices side effects or takes a blood sugar test. The dogs alert their owners by whining or licking their hands.

Protecting Special-Needs Companions

Service dogs for autistic people alert their companions to self-harm behaviors they might not realize they’re engaging in. They also provide support processing auditory and visual stimuli, according to Animal Planet.

Smoking Kills

It’s no surprise that smoking cigarettes causes cancer in humans. Second-hand smoke or even the residue on a smoker’s hands can cause rashes or even cancer in pets, too. Quit for your health and your pet’s health.
