Can Dogs Smell Cancer?

Can Dogs Smell Cancer? | Dogs | Scoop.it

"

Cancer-smelling dogs have been grabbing headlines recently: U.K. resident Marian Cooper claimed her 6-year-old pug Flo alerted her to a lump in her right breast that turned out to be malignant. And Sharon Rawlinson, also of the U.K., told The Sun that her Cavalier King Charles spaniel kept gently pawing her left breast until she went to the doctor.

But anecdotes are one thing; science is another. The question before doctors and scientists now is whether they can consistently harness and apply dogs' sniffing skills to save women's lives."

I think that we need to continue research with dogs who have so much potential for using their sense of smell to detect cancer. If we put more research money in to having dogs as a diagnostic tool for sniffing out breast cancer as well as other cancers, I think we would be spending our money wisely because dogs sense of smell are so good at detecting things that sophisticated equiptment can miss and we would detect cancer so much sooner. This article just scratches the surface of the potential of cancer sniffing dogs.

Compulsory microchips for all dogs in Scotland

Compulsory microchips for all dogs in Scotland | Dogs | Scoop.it

Great idea or just a bit much?

Peter A Bell's curator insight, April 3, 2013 4:07 AM

The Scottish Government is undoubtedly right to be cautious about such simplistic "solutions". Microchipping is unlikely to be effective unless it is part of a package of measures including licensing of breeders, traders and owners and compulsory third-party insurance.

If you are worried about home invasion, do you really need a guard dog?  It seems that a yappy dog will dog.
