After recently losing my 11 year old Rottweiler, Brook, to cancer I found this article interesting and informative to share.    Brook’s abdominal cancer came as a great surprise, and very fast.  In about 6 weeks, we lost her.  

 MSNBC reports today about Tails of Hope Foundation, Inc. (“Tails of Hope”) a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the field of veterinary medicine and helping to eradicate cancer and other life-threatening diseases affecting companion animals.  

As in human cancer, detection is the first step to recovery. Knowing what to look for could save your companion animal’s life. including what to look for and what to expect if your pet is diagnosed with cancer. 

The full article describes what to look for as common signs of cancer in your pet, and what to expect if you pet is diagnosed with cancer.    Thankfully there are organizations out there like Tails of Hope that can help with the research, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer in our beloved pets. 

I miss you, big girl!
