Canine Cancer. It is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 2, afflicting one in every four. Not long ago, a cancer diagnosis for a dog meant a short, painful life. Fortunately, in recent years, veterinary scientists have made tremendous strides in the area of canine cancer research. Their breakthroughs have led to the development of new treatments aimed at curing canine cancer and extending the lives of our faithful friends and companions. But there is much more work to be done.
The Morris Animal Foundation
(MAF) has funded more than 100 canine cancer studies so far, driving the fundraising and helping coordinate the research of schools of veterinary medicine, cancer centers, and scientific organizations around the world. They have established the Canine Cancer Campaign
, an effort aimed at curing canine cancer within a dog’s lifetime – the next 10 to 20 years.
