Bio Detection Dogs are trained to detect the minute odours associated with may cancers and other diseases to assist with early diagnosis. This pioneering work could help scientists and medics develop faster, cheaper, non-invasive methods of diagnosis that could impact upon thousands of lives.
Working in conjunction with oncologists, scientists and NHS Trusts, we are continuing studies into colorectal and prostate cancers and have published several scientific papers about our work. In addition, we are exploring the dogs’ ability to detect a number of other cancers and diseases including: Parkinson’s disease, malaria and bacteria.
Medical Alert Assistance Dogs are trained to assist individuals who manage complex medical conditions, such as diabetes, on a day-to-day basis. The dogs are taught to identify the odour changes that are emitted prior to an emergency and alert the person to take preventative action.
Our dogs are currently working with people with: Type 1 diabetes, Addisons disease, PoTS, pain seizures and severe allergies. There are currently 81 dogs partnered to people with chronic conditions across the UK and with more funding this number will increase.
By assisting individuals with their conditions our dogs help reduce paramedic call outs and hospital admissions: giving people and their families greater confidence and independence, enabling them to lead a full and happy life.
