service/alert dogs? My husband was recently diagnosed with T1 diabetes. They are in the beginning stages of the med board, and getting him a pump. I was wondering if they would pay for or at least help pay for a diabetic alert dog? I know that the pump will take his levels about every five minutes but I was wondering about a dog who would help alert him to lows at times when he's like sleeping or in loud situations where he might not hear the alert from the pump. We are hoping that since he has it under control for the most part that he will be able to stay in.
