Service Dog Calls 911 For Veteran Who Has Seizures


Recommended Posts



When help arrived, he took them to the backyard, where they found McGlade unconscious, and got him to a hospital. The Marine had served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan before being injured by a roadside bomb. He got the Pit Bull and Lab mix to recognize when he has seizures coming on, and to help him cope with PTSD. "I don't think I could operate in the everyday world without him right now," McGlade says. The veteran is doing well after spending a night in the hospital. - Watch it at CNN - http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/us/2014/05/12/dnt-dog-dials-911-saves-veteran-owner.wsyx.html



seizures and PTSD? two conditions that marijuana can help. too bad this vet is in ohio where they dont have mmj yet. service and guide dogs are great, but what about preventing seizures safely with marijuana? wouldnt that be better than having an ambulance take you to a hospital? or falling down unconcious?

i raised a leader dog for the blind , it was a very good experience. taught me a lot about responsibility.

if anyone is thinking about getting a dog, think about raising and training a leader dog puppy. its very rewarding, but requires a lot of time and effort.
