We have been contacted by Merck to provide information about service dogs and how they relate to Multiple Sclerosis. This is what we have been waiting for. We need to get the drug companies to acknowledge that there are treatments beyond their medications and get behind our efforts.
Treating MS isn’t simple. “It takes a village,” as Hillary Clinton once said about educating children. Treatment options certainly revolve around mainstream medications but there are ways to cope with MS that are beyond the medications.
Partnering with a service dog changes the life of the MS patient. MS is part of the life of the patient for a very long time and enhancing quality of life is of paramount importance.
Service Dogs Rock!
