Diabetic girl saved by 'hypo-alert' dog23rd June 2010
A labrador-retriever has been trained to sense when its owner needs to be aware of a dip in blood sugar.
The "hypo-alert" dog is one of eight dogs registered in Britain. The dog licks its owner's hand in order to alert her to perform a blood sugar test or to take an injection of insulin. The dogs are particularly useful in cases where diabetic patients do not sense an oncoming attack of hypoglycaemia.
