Pet & People Cancers
Pets and people get many of the same cancers. To understand why, we must first appreciate the human-animal bond–the interaction between people and animals that benefit physically, psychologically and emotionally. Dating back thousands of years, animals have become domesticated as comforting companions, ardent protectors, service and work animals, therapists, and family members. We bring them into our homes and they share our lives and love, and also the same environment, air, water, foods and toxins.
Cancer occurs naturally in our pets just like it does in humans. So learn more about cancer on our website to take better care of your pet’s health and your own.
Little is still known about pet cancer prevention, although neutering has been shown to minimize risk of pet breast and testicular cancer. However, early detection remains the key in successfully treating pet cancers.
And help us raise awareness of cancer in pets and people.
