Franklin from Nashville Tennessee has our question of the week. Franklin, like a lot of older adults, has a medical condition called A-Fib, which stands for Atrial Fibrillation. AFib is a condition in which the heart beats irregularly and can lead to weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath and on the more severe end of the spectrum can cause blood clots and strokes. Franklin wants to know exactly what an AFib alert dog is and what the dog can be trained to do to help him with his A-Fib. See what our answer is in this weeks Medical Alert Dog Monday video.
So what do you think of our answer? Do you think that you can train your own A-Fib alert dog using our in person training classes like Citka?
