Pet Cancer Awareness Month
Published on: May 16, 2017
Did you know that an estimated 6 million dogs and nearly 6 million cats will be diagnosed with cancer this year? According to the Veterinary Cancer Society, cancer is the leading cause of death in 47% of dogs, especially dogs over age ten, and 32% of cats.
The mission of the National Canine Cancer Foundation is Education, Outreach and Research:
One out of every three dogs will get cancer. To help educate and raise awareness for every pet owner they have created one of the most comprehensive canine cancer library including the ten early warning signs of cancer in your pet.
Every event that the National Canine Cancer Foundation puts on, every page of their website and every product and email they send out is done to raise awareness of canine cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundations goal is to save dogs lives, educate and reach all dog owners, find new treatment and a cure for canine cancer.
The National Canine Cancer Foundation helps fund universities who are performing cutting edge research toward prevention, finding cures, better treatments, more accurate cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with cancer and diminishing dogs suffering from cancer.
Throughout the month of May, buy one our specially decorated Pet Cancer Awareness dog biscuit two-packs at any participating Wag N’ Wash and 50 cents from each purchase will be donated to the National Canine Cancer Foundation!
