The devastating effects of canine cancer have been experienced by so many pet parents. It is difficult to grasp the pain and grief this disease has caused.
Chase Away K9 Cancer is a fantastic organization that works to not only fund research but also helps to support families going through this tough time with comfort, information and awareness.
Statistics show that cancer affects 1 out of every 3 dogs, and of those, over half will die from the disease. According to the National Canine Cancer Foundation, it is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 10 and that fifty percent of dogs over the age of 10 will develop cancer at some point.
Watch for the signs and symptoms of cancer. The sooner the disease is detected the better the chances of recovery.
We look forward to the day where no one loses a best friend to cancer.
