CAN DOGS REALLY DETECT LIFE THREATENING ILLNESSES WITH THEIR NOSE?

Unfortunately, there still is no cure for cancer; but we are making strides to find cures everyday.

97% ACCURATE IN TESTS

For years we have heard about dogs and their amazing sense of smell. Now there is a new study showing that dogs can smell out blood samples of people with cancer with almost 97% accuracy!

Now you might think, why is that important? It's important because early detection is always the best scenario for survival rates.  Plus, the new cancer screenings could lead to affordable and accurate without being invasive.

BioScentDX is planning on using their dog screening to help detect other life threatening illnesses as well. A breast cancer screening study will be taking place in November.
