Yes!!! A service dog can help with a multitude of illnesses, both mental and physical! There are some dogs who can detect fluctuation in adrenal and serotonin levels; There are some who can interrupt nightmares or panic attacks. What I do know, is that service people sacrifice a portion of their soul for our well being. I would be more than happy to sacrifice a portion of my tax dollars in order to help heal a portion of their soul they willingly put on the line for our country. Hoorah and stay strong!
