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

      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, some people use service dogs for POTS and find them helpful. Service dogs can provide mobility assistance, counterbalance support, pick up items from the ground, and even alert to POTS episodes. However, it's important to consider the responsibility and commitment involved in having a service dog, as they require training, care, and ongoing expenses.
