Re: Using a dog’s superior olfactory sensitivity to identify Clostridium difficile in stools and patients: proof of principle study

In the video, there are conflicting data about the relative superiority of smell in dogs vs humans. In the introduction it is alluded to be 300% better in dogs, later a researcher states it is 300 times better (or 30,000%). Which one is it??
