9/11 Dogs and Their Impact on WTC Responders' Health

Cynthia Otto, DVM, PhD, of the University of Pennsylvania Vet Working Dog Center studies the health of 9/11 search and rescue dogs deployed to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, the Pentagon, and a 9/11 landfill site to understand the health issues of the dogs. Watch our video story and hear Dr. Otto explain what insight these canines have for the future medical care of human first responders also exposed to the toxic environments of 9/11. Dr. Otto was at the WTC site on Sept. 1, 2011 caring for the dogs that are receiving recognition on Sept. 11 during a ceremony at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ.  For more information visit:
