Hospital sniffer dogs smell out sick patients

Hospital sniffer dogs identify ilness in poo poo

Turns out dogs can identify the presence of bacterial infection by smelling the air around patients’ beds, notably in detecting the deadly infection C.difficile.

Apparently the bug gives poo poo a distinctive odour, which a dog’s sensitive nose can detect.

So the next time you get smelt up and down by a dog, consider it a free medical check-up……and down?
