Medical Detection Dogs trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease. It is at the forefront of the research into the fight against cancer and helping people with life-threatening diseases.
Our Bio-Detection Dogs are trained to find the odour of diseases, such as cancer, in samples such as urine, breath and swabs.
Our Medical Alert Assistance Dogs are trained to detect minute changes in an individual’s personal odour triggered by their disease and alert them to an impending medical event. We work with individuals suffering from life-threatening diseases including type 1 diabetes, Addison's disease, POTS, and many more.
We receive no government funding for the work we do and rely entirely on the generosity of donations from trusts and the public.
