Some animals are just amazing: Bio-detection dogs are trained to detect the odour of diseases such as cancer, while Medical Alert Assistance Dogs detect minute changes in an individual’s personal odour to alert them to an impending medical event such as a blood-sugar crash. Dr Claire Guest, the Director and co-founder of the charity ‘Medical Detection Dogs’, describes how it all started, the personal debt she owes ‘Daisy’, and the future for this amazing medical advance. Hopefully, one of her canine friends will come too.
