Medical Detection Dogs Update

Malaria you won’t believe it but the latest research the clever canines will be helping with very soon is in fact, malaria detection. Apparently it can be done by dogs, and helps stop infecting since mosquitoes tend to go for people already infected, hence spreading it more. “Using medical detection dogs to identify people with malaria parasites.” Durham University will partner with Medical Detection Dogs, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the Medical Research Council Unit The Gambia on this project.” Loads more reasons to help me support them. Read about it here.

And if you missed what all the fuss is about – here’s the short video telling you all about the MDD’s amazing work, providing assistance alert dogs to smell human disease and prevent harm, plus their invaluable work in early cancer detection, and now malaria!
