Summary: Meet dogs who detect cancer and Parkinson's disease, and dogs who alert people to seizures and diabetic lows or highs and other life-threatening physical ailments. Bestselling author Maria Goodavage brings us behind the scenes of cutting-edge science at top research centres, and into the lives of people whose well-being depends on their devoted, highly skilled personal 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.
