Medical Detection Dogs

Charity Overview

Medical Detection Dogs train dogs to detect the minute odours associated with cancers and other human diseases; pioneering work that will assist in the development of faster, cheaper, non-invasive methods of diagnosis that could impact thousands of lives. Medical Alert Assistance dogs support individuals with complex health conditions who have no awareness of an impending life-threatening medical event. The dogs identify the smallest odour changes emitted prior to an emergency and alert the person to take preventative action, which reduces any potential hospital admissions or emergency situations. This gives clients greater confidence and independence, enabling them to lead a full and happy life.
