Pet Cancer, Your Pet and You
If you’ve ever taken a meeting at our offices with Joe Snyder, you’ve probably met his dogs, “Max” & “Molly.” Outside of his kids, they’re the love of his life, and he doesn’t spare any expense in keeping them happy and healthy. It should come as no surprise, then, that Joe personally asked me to remind everyone that May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month.
Pet cancer is serious business. According to The Veterinary Cancer Center, cancer accounts for nearly 50% of all disease-related pet deaths each year, and The American Veterinary Medical Association reports that dogs get cancer at roughly the same rate as humans and 1 in 4 will develop a tumor of some kind during their lifetime. The good news is that many cancers can be cured, but that often depends on an educated pet owner knowing the signs of pet cancer so it can be caught early.
How You Can Help Prevent Pet Cancer?
New pet cancer treatments are being researched everyday, but finding cures takes time and money. To help move things along, drop by the Pet Cancer Awareness Web site to find out about how, by only donating a few dollars, you and your fellow pet owners can help make real progress toward saving dogs and cats from this killer disease.
Oh yeah … “Max” and “Molly” say thanks! 🙂
