Newest Canine Research: Dogs can detect presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus at 95% accuracy!

One of the latest case studies on canines is a research study conducted by the University of Helsinki in Finland, which found that dogs can detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in human sweat samples with a high degree of accuracy. The study involved training dogs to identify the scent of the virus in sweat samples collected from COVID-19-positive patients.

The study found that the dogs were able to identify the virus with an accuracy rate of 94%, which is similar to the accuracy rate of PCR tests. The research team believes that this could be a useful tool in detecting the virus, especially in places where PCR testing is not easily accessible or affordable.

Another recent case study on canines was conducted by the University of California, Davis, which found that dogs can detect the scent of ovarian cancer in blood samples with a high degree of accuracy. The study involved training dogs to identify the scent of cancer in blood samples collected from ovarian cancer patients.

The study found that the dogs were able to identify the scent of cancer with an accuracy rate of 95%, which is higher than the accuracy rate of some medical tests. The research team believes that this could be a useful tool in detecting ovarian cancer, especially in its early stages when it’s difficult to diagnose. –by Donna Stanley, Endless Mt. Labradors.
