A dog can foresee 5 evil states and 3 amazing things
Believe it or not, it has been proven that dogs can smell lung cancer from their owner's breath!
In addition to being able to train to find missing people and hidden drugs, explosives and other objects, dogs, thanks to their strong sense of smell, can detect diseases in their owners. In doing so, we are talking about the average pet, not about specially trained animals!
"A dog's sense of smell can smell units in a trillion molecules, so something that can be compared to a drop of water in an Olympic pool, that's the size of a molecule a dog can detect. They have 40 times more receptors than humans and I think it's inconceivable that let's experience, "explains Dr. Vet. Mario Babić for 24satahr. He points out that thanks to that ability, dogs can smell just about every change in our body.
"Everything that changes our smell, even at the molecular level, is comprehensible to the dog and he will smell it. The problem is that we have yet to learn what are the conditions or diseases that change us to the extent that it becomes available to dogs, so that we can teach them to react and thus save our lives in the role of helpers, but we should know that a dog is not a machine, so that what it smells carries a high probability, not a 100% solution. the probability is very high and ranges up to 80%, but there is still the possibility that it is only a probability, not a fact ", says Dr. Babić.
He also pointed out that British scientists are currently developing a robot to help diagnose breast cancer, which would analyze dog-like odor molecules and predict the degree of cancer malignancy, but that is still far from being realized.
These 9 unexpected conditions a dog can discover about its owner thanks only to its sense of smell:
1. Parkinson's disease and migraines
This idea was encouraged by a woman from Scotland who otherwise has a super sense of smell, and even six years before the appearance of Parkinson's disease, she noticed that her husband had a different smell. After that, they started working in Manchester on training dogs that would be able to detect the onset of this disease. In addition, they found that a dog can smell when a person will start having migraines ", explained Dr. Babić.
2. Changes in blood sugar levels
Scientific studies have confirmed that dogs can detect a drop in blood glucose levels. By the smell of our sweat, they can determine exactly what condition we are in, which helps people who suffer from diabetes. Specially trained dogs can help them detect the problem before dangerous symptoms arrive, so they can take medication or seek help in time. In such situations, the dog will show signs of stress and try to attract the owner's attention.
Due to cancer, cells function differently than in a healthy person, they divide rapidly so that the tumor can grow. Damaged cells produce a specific protein that dogs can smell. It has been proven that dogs can smell lung cancer from their owner's breath, or prostate and kidney cancer from the smell of urine. There are also indications that dogs can even smell changes in skin cells and detect melanoma, as well as colon cancer. In some world clinics, they even use specially trained dogs that can smell breast cancer at an early stage.
Most people recognize others by the way they look, but not dogs. They rely on their snout for recognition. For dogs, each individual has a unique scent like a fingerprint. Experts also claim that dogs can smell familiar people or places even if that smell is mixed with perfume or its presence is obscured by someone else. Additionally, dogs distinguish identical twins only by smell. This ability is used by the police and other services when they need to search for lost people or in other emergencies.
5. Epileptic seizure
Dogs can detect that an epileptic seizure is being prepared for the owner 45 minutes before it occurs. Although the exact mechanism of detection is not known, it is assumed that the dog smells a special smell that a person emits before the attack. In that case, the dog may behave strangely, bark or bark. Also, during the attack, dogs usually stay with their owners, guarding them.
6. He knows you touched another dog
Dogs send messages to each other using pheromones, a chemical compound secreted in the urine, through skin, fur and fecal matter. If you have visited a friend who has a dog, your pet will know it. He'll sniff you when you get home to find out who you're hanging out with. The information that the dog will receive tells him what kind it is, how big the dog is and whether it is healthy. If he is a more jealous type, you could experience offended behavior and refusal of contact.
Every, even the smallest change in our body odor, the dog will immediately smell. If you are pregnant, the body goes through hormonal changes that your pet simply cannot ignore. Experts say that a dog can detect the owner's pregnancy very early only by the smell and the way your body moves. Because you have become a new person for them, they could change their behavior towards you.
8. Storm and hurricane
Dogs are closer to nature than humans. By sniffing the air, they can predict even the smallest changes in weather conditions. In addition, they have a sharpened sense of geomagnetic field and vibrations, so their prediction of weather changes can be really reliable.
9. Addison's disease
An adrenal gland disease that can endanger a patient's life - they often faint and need resuscitation. The dog feels it and starts behaving strangely.
