Medical Detection Dogs uses the amazing power of the dog’s nose to detect human diseases.
Because dogs are able to detect tiny odour concentrations, around one part per trillion (the equivalent of one teaspoon of sugar in two Olympic sized swimming pools), we are potentially able to detect diseases, such as cancer, much earlier than is currently possible. Our pioneering work could help to speed up the diagnosis process and impact on thousands of lives.
Bio Dog of the Month is Jodie, one of our Pseudomonas detection dogs. She’s just finished her first round of double blind testing for her project and we’re so pleased with the way she worked.
