Go Fetch Some Free Cancer Help


May is the AKC Canine Health Foundation’s Pet Cancer Awareness Month to help pup parents understand treatment options, shed light on new studies and discover ways to support canine cancer research. Their free resources include a cancer library and informative podcasts and webinars.

I strongly recommend the 15-minute podcast, “What to Expect When You Visit a Veterinary Oncologist” with Dr. Rachel Reiman. It will give you an idea of what to bring with you (records, list of questions and concerns), how your oncologist will work as part of your wellness team, types of diagnostic tests and how she might approach creating a treatment plan with you.

Since 1995, the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) has funded $10.7 million to support canine health research (browse through their success stores here). It is the largest foundation in the world to fund exclusively canine health studies.

If you’d like to support them, there are a number of ways to help:

The CHF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, so your donation is tax-deductible.
