My guess is the dogs are detecting the presence of proteins produced by the body during inflammation in the response to an upper respiratory virus (any respiratory virus). What I’d like to know is at what point after infection the dogs can detect the infection; if before the onset of symptoms then dogs will be more effective and efficient than temperature checks.

Being able to sniff out infection in those who are asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic, would truly be a game-changer. For those people, a thermometer is just a waste of batteries.... and I thought I read/heard that one study showed that 48% of transmitted infections came from those folks.
