November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month – Will You Spread the Word?

At PetCure Oncology, we deal with pet cancer every day. We work with the most experienced veterinary clinical teams, the best pet advocates to help coordinate care and have helped treat thousands of pets with cancer. November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month and we are sharing critical information all pet owners should know, like how to reduce the risk of cancer, the common types of pet cancer, and what we are doing to help dogs and cats who have been diagnosed with cancer.

 

How to Reduce Your Pet’s Risk of Cancer


Does your dog or cat receive regular checkups? Do they eat a healthy, well-balanced diet? Does your pet get their teeth cleaned? All these actions can help reduce your pet’s risk of receiving a cancer diagnosis.
