The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and the Chase Away K9 Cancer foundation encourage dog owners to take 10 minutes out of every month to do a quick canine cancer check.
Chase Away K9 Cancer was founded in honor of Chase, a six-year-old black lab that lost her battle to nasal carcinoma. The organization’s goal is to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of canine cancers.
Early detection is important in fighting canine cancer. For this reason, a monthly check for any unusual bumps, lumps, or swelling on your dog’s body is a good idea. If anything of concern is found during a check, please do not panic and consult with your pet’s veterinarian. To help dog owners remember to check monthly, Chase Away K9 Cancer recommends doing this check on the same day of every month and has designated the 14th in honor of Chase’s birthday.
