Doctor Dogs by Maria Goodavage
Item # 9781524743062
We meet dogs who detect cancer and ParkinsonÕs disease, and dogs who alert people to seizures and diabetic lows or highs and other life-threatening physical ailments. Goodavage reveals the revolutionary ways dogs are helping those with autism, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and post-traumatic stress disorder. And she introduces us to intrepid canines who are protecting us from antibiotic-resistant bugs, and to dogs who may one day help keep us safe from epidemic catastrophe. Their paycheck for their lifesaving work? Heartfelt praise and a tasty treat or favorite toy.
The emotional element in Doctor Dogs by Maria Goodavage delivers as powerfully as the science. You donÕt have to be a dog lover to care deeply about what these dogs are doing and what we are learning from them—although if youÕre not a dog lover, you probably will be by the end of the book.
