Dogs in Health Care

Dogs have a storied history in health care, and over the years, pioneering dogs have improved and advanced health care in a myriad of ways.

In her new book, Jill Schilp presents the stories of the pioneer dogs of health care, from the Mercy Dogs of World War I to the medicine-toting sled dogs Togo and Balto to contemporary therapy dogs.

More than the dogs themselves,this book is about the human-animal relationship, and moments in history where that relationship propelled health care forward.

Dogs in Health Care is available fall, 2019 from McFarland Books .
