  • INFORMATION EVENING…Medical Detection Dogs 12th May!

    Posted on by Kat Mozdzynski

    We are extremely fortunate to be hosting a representative from the Medical Detection Dogs charity for an evening presentation on Medical Alert Dogs and the work they are doing. It is a fantastic talk and we suspect they may bring along one of the trainees for support!

    The event is being held at Flore Millennium Village Hall, Meadow Farm Close
    Northampton NN7 4NT. There will be refreshments and cake for you all from 7pm and the talk will begin at 7.30pm. £2.50 entry which is a donation for this fantastic charity!

    “The charity trains dogs to help people with life threatening health conditions, giving them greater independence and above all saving their lives on a daily basis”

    Cancer Detection Dogs are being trained to detect the volatile organic compounds released by cancer cells and it is hoped that this work and research will enable scientists to develop an early cancer screening system.

    Medical Alert Dogs are trained to assist individuals who manage complex medical conditions on a day to day basis. The dogs are taught to identify the odour changes that are associated with certain medical events.

    For example:
    Addisonian crisis
    Severe Diabetes
    Pain Seizures
    Severe allergies

    They also have “Bed Bug Dogs”! Is there anything our canine companions cant do 🙂

    So don’t miss the chance to come and learn about these amazing animals and the work they do! Weedon Vets spent last year raising money for the charity and are really looking forward to presenting those funds that evening.
