Pauline Blomfield (K9 Medical Detection NZ)

Pauline has owned and trained dogs for over 40 years. Her understanding of the incredible sensory abilities of canines led to her creating K9 Medical Detection New Zealand Charitable Trust. The use of dogs as a diagnostic tool for the early non-invasive detection of cancer and other diseases has been embraced by specialists throughout NZ, and Pauline has a brought together a full specialist clinical support team.

K9MD has their training centre at AgResearch Invermay in Mosgiel, just outside Dunedin. Working to full capacity with 3 training rooms, 5 laboratories and kennelling for the dogs, Pauline is now working towards creating a new specifically designed larger facility dedicated for early cancer detection.
