The American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation (CHF) published a wonderful post about canine cancer that includes podcasts, webinars, and informational links.
All dogs, whether mixed breed or purebred, are at risk for developing cancer. According to research published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2011, approximately 30% of older dogs succumb to cancer. Pet Cancer Awareness Month, observed each May, provides dog owners with information on treatment options, cutting-edge research, and ways to support canine cancer research.
