One of our news stations had a thing on Dogs and cancer which we have been discussing here from time to time. They say that a lot of Vets are reporting an increase of Dogs they are seeing with cancer. No specific breed. From what I can remember they mentioned the following causes:
Our smoke. Not just the 2nd hand smoke, but nicotine sticks to their fur and they lick it off.
Paint - when you're painting your house
Yard spray. They mentioned a man who had a dog and it died of cancer. He then got another and it too
died of cancer. They lived on a golf course and the man would let his dog run on the golf course. Well it was all the sprays they use to keep their lawns nice.
Check for lumps.
We're taking Pemon to the Vet on Tuesday for his annual an I'm reading up on vaccinations because they are mentioning that some vaccinations can cause cancer too. They didn't say this on TV, but I've read that most booster shots that are giving annually only need to be giving every 3 years. I'm going to have Mark check with the Vet and see what she says.
Hope this blog has been helpful. Many of you might already know this stuff, but some of it I didn't. And I want our Doodles to be healthy.
