Meet The Cancer-Detecting Dogs Saving Lives One Sniff At A Time

In a small village outside of Milton Keynes, dogs of all ages and breeds are trained to sniff out cancer from thousands of samples, in a routine that will one day save lives.

At Medical Detection Dogs’ HQ, a major trial is underway where pets are taught to sniff out prostate cancer from urine samples provided by a local hospital. So far they have a 93% success rate.

The charity is also trialling whether breast cancer can be detected by dogs using something as simple as a breath sample.
