Does anyone use a service dog for EDS/POTS? If so, have they been helpful?

      I’ve seen that people have service dogs for this and was wondering how someone would go about getting one.

        @ZebracornV you can buy one but they're super expensive. or you can train one yourself!

          @lola_ where do you find someone to train a dog for things like fainting and fetching meds, etc? I have a hard enough time getting our family dog to sit and stay 😂

      Yes I also have both and find it very helpful. He helps pick things up off the floor and responds if I faint
