Diabetic alert animals are still not recognized by SCOTUS (Supreme Court of 
the United States) as service aniamls yet but we are not giving up :). It 
was a year and a half ago they finally realized Siezure alert animals should 
be covered. Also be careful how you try to represemnt a dog... if you claim 
its a service animal and you get challenged adn the cops called and it 
doesnt fit the criteria they can fine the heck out of you and drag you 
before court. I am one who thinks ESA (emotional Support animals) should be 
covered by the ADA I feel they provide a valid service. Scotus does not yet
