Summary
Dogs who detect cancer and Parkinson's. Dogs who anticipate seizures and diabetic lows and highs. Dogs who help treat autism, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and PTSD. With all the amazing technology available to today's medical doctors, one of the most promising tools is surprisingly familiar: a dog's nose. In this globe-trotting journey, Maria Goodavage brings us behind the scenes of cutting-edge science at top research centers, and into the lives of people whose well-being depends on their devoted, highly skilled personal MDs (medical dogs). With her signature wit and passion, Goodavage explores how doctor dogs are becoming our happy allies in the fight against dozens of physical and mental conditions. She introduces intrepid canines who are protecting us from antibiotic-resistant bugs, and to dogs who may one day help keep us safe from epidemic catastrophe. The dogs' paycheck for their lifesaving work? Heartfelt praise and a tasty treat or favorite toy. The emotional element in Doctor Dogs delivers as powerfully as the science. You don't have to be a dog lover to care deeply about what we are learning from these dogs -- and if you're not a dog lover, you will be by the end of the book!
