Be Your Dog’s Hero: Do a Check Once a Month on the 14th to Chase Away K9 Cancer

September 14, 2011 by Jillian at Tails in Featured, Home with 0 Comments

1 in 3 dogs will be diagnosed with cancer. Those numbers are astounding. Tails’ lost our own beloved Maple Star last month to cancer less than four weeks after she was diagnosed. Chase Away K9 Cancer, a great organization raising money and awareness for cancer in dogs, has partnered with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine to initiate a campaign called, “Be Your Dog’s Hero”.

They invite dog guardians to spend 10 minutes on the 14th of each month feeling and looking for bumps and swellings.

Be Your Dogs Hero

Check your dog from head to toe including inside their mouth. If you notice anything suspicious or worrisome, follow up with your Vet immediately.

Keep a record of any growths so you can track changes and anything new.

Also be sure to watch for any unusual behavior or changes in attitude.
