(FeaturedNews.com) – Trisha Allison, 50, a mother of two revealed to SWNS that her 2-year-old dog named Luna had been the one to alert her that she had breast cancer. As Allison relayed, Luna had jumped on her chest while she was sitting on the couch. More peculiarly though she started hitting Allison’s right breast, while also sniffing and nudging her.
In an interview with the BBC, Allison revealed that while Luna is a very affectionate dog, she does not normally behave like that, but on this particular occasion, she would not leave her alone. Following the incident with her dog, Allison felt that her chest was continuing to hurt, which was why she performed a self-exam only to realize that something was not right.
Allison, who regularly gets checkups, was quick to make an appointment with her doctor and found out she had cancer only two weeks later, on April 18. After the biopsy, Allison started receiving cancer treatment and has had two operations at Nottingham City Hospital so she could have the lump in her breast removed. Now, she is in the process of waiting to see if any further chemotherapy was needed.
Early detection is essential for successful cancer treatments, which is why Allison has been praising her puppy and calling her “my little lifesaver.” Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, which treated Allison, said that this is not the first time that they have had a dog point out to the owner through sniffing and nudging a certain area that there might be cancer there.
