The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has amended its regulations to provide veterans with mobility, visual, or hearing impairments benefits to support the use of a service dog as part of the management of these impairments. The benefits include assistance with veterinary care, travel benefits associated with obtaining and training a dog, and the provision, maintenance, and replacement of hardware required for the dog to perform the tasks necessary to assist the veterans.
APTA will provide a summary of the final rule on service dogs on its website shortly.
