Medical Service Dog

A service dog requires extensive training. That training, in addition to veterinary costs, staff and dog trainers, registration and more, runs the average cost of a service dog up to $60,000. 
I need a Service Dog for Epilepsy, PTSD, Anxiety with phobias.  All funds will go towards a Service Dog, training, vet care, immunizations, heartworming, the staff that has to foster the dog while in extensive training, ect. I had multiple back to back seizures last week and ended up in the hospital with injuries to my lumbar, coccyx, and spine. A service dog could save my life by getting me to safety by detecting a seizure or aura. To all willing and able to help I would like to say thank you. 
*A Service Dog for PTSD can help lessen the trauma associated with triggering events and going in public.
An assistance dog for a person with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is taught behaviors that help people with PTSD to better cope with fear and anxiety. These dogs can provide a physical barrier between their partner and the public, provide stress reducing pressure on trained body points and provide a social bridge as a point of conversation. These dogs have full public access rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Seizure alert dogs are one of the controversial types of service dog. They react with a specific type of behavior right before her human has a seizure. The ability to alert to seizures seems to be a natural ability of trained dogs.
Seizure response dogs provide help to a person experiencing an epileptic seizure. These dogs bark for help or to press an alarm system during a person’s seizure. They can also get a person out of an unsafe place. And may bring medicine or a phone to a person who is coming out of a seizure.
