Yes, dogs can smell if a human is near death. This is because they have an acute sense of smell and can pick up on subtle changes in the scent of a person's body. When someone is ill or dying, their body chemistry changes and this can be detected by a dog's sensitive nose.
An Arteriologist (Arteriology) is the emerging Medical Specialty about the prevention and treatment and reversal of the #1 cause of death and disability-Arteriosclerosis. An ASCVD event ( MI , CVA, DEMENTIA) occurs every 25 seconds in the USA. The cause of ASCVD is arterial vascular inflammation. We look for the markers of vascular inflammation via blood and urine tests through the Cleveland Heart Lab; vascular Genetics (via the Boston Heart Lab); and finding the DNA of the oral pathogens (seen in Endodontal and Periodontal Disease.(now the #1 root cause of an event occurrence, insulin resistance is now #2). Documenting the reversal of ASCVD is done annually by a simple Carotid Intimal-Medial Thickness (CIMT) ultrasound. Everything we look for is reversible and preventable. There are many primary Root Causes of the Tree of Inflammation. Every person is unique in their Root Causes. We define an Optimal Plan for the individual to get rid of the “Fire in the Intimal-Medial Wall” that causes the plaque rupture or erosion from the wall into the lumen where the blood flows and creates the event where the patient’s life changed. If they have previously had an event we guarantee that if they just get rid of their arterial vascular inflammation, they will not have another event.

Yes, dogs can sense death, but it depends on many factors.
