Autism Acceptance Month: The Power of Assistance Dogs

It's Autism Acceptance Month, and in autism support, assistance dogs are true heroes.

They provide companionship, comfort, and invaluable assistance to individuals with autism, creating profound bonds that enrich lives daily.

At Macahl Animal Health, we're proud to play a role in supporting such remarkable canine companions. Here's how Oralade® helps assistance dogs thrive:

  • Hydration Support: Assistance dogs often lead active lifestyles, accompanying their handlers on various outings and activities. Proper hydration is essential to maintain their energy levels and overall health, especially during long hours of work or training sessions. Oralade® provides rapid and effective hydration, replenishing electrolytes and fluids lost during physical exertion, ensuring that assistance dogs remain hydrated and alert throughout their working day

  • Energy Replenishment: Assistance dogs undergo rigorous training to develop their skills and perform their duties effectively. Oralade® ACTIVE contains carbohydrates that are readily available energy sources, helping to replenish energy levels and sustain their performance during demanding tasks. Whether guiding their handlers through crowded spaces or providing comfort during stressful situations, assistance dogs rely on Oralade® ACTIVE to stay energized and focused on their responsibilities

  • GI Support: With its carefully balanced electrolyte composition, prebiotic, and easily digestible nutrients, Oralade® GI+ provides comprehensive gut support. This specialized formula helps to promote a healthy digestive system, ensuring assistance dogs can tackle their tasks with comfort and confidence

  • Healthy Treat: Oralade® is highly palatable and serves as a healthy treat for assistance dogs. Its delicious flavour makes it a rewarding option for positive reinforcement during training or a special treat after a task is done

As we celebrate Autism Acceptance Month, let's honour the extraordinary partnership between individuals with autism and their assistance dogs. Let's recognize the strength, resilience, and boundless potential of humans and canines alike. Let's create a world where everyone is valued, supported, and empowered to thrive.
