Yes Indeed! As a Laboratory manager I am always skeptical of anedotal accounts of detections. One of our Nurses on our oncology unit has actaully been able to get his dog certified as an aid. His dog has proven over numerous accounts by pulling on the leash to go home during walks and barking when they are out. Sure enough the little guy has always been correct. Is he smelling ketones? Is he recognizing a behavior change in his owner....I don't know what it is, but it is facinating to see the two together. Man's best friend living up to the expectation.
