A canine cancer diagnosis can be frightening, so the more information you have and the more knowledge you gather about treatment options, the easier it will be for you to decide what steps to take to provide the best care for your dog.
Many types of canine cancer CAN be cured through conventional treatments or knocked into remission for increasingly more extended periods.
There are a lot of myths circulating about what causes this disease, including:
- Microchipping: There is no conclusive data to suggest this, and hardly any data at all to give this credence.
- Dogs can’t get skin cancer: Even though dogs have fur, they still can (and do) get this disease).
- Spaying and neutering: There is still a lot of debate about this, but no proof — spaying and neutering help to prevent some types of cancer such as mammary and prostate.
