While at BarkWorld this summer, mom had a chance to speak with representatives from 2 Million Dogs 2 Miles, Inc. This is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to discovering the "common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research."
This is a very important topic for us, as mom lost her Matilda to cancer before I came along. So last spring, when mom noticed a lump on my side, off we went to my Vet. After our visit, he reassured mom that it was just a fatty mass. Phew!
Thanks to the good people at 2 Million Dogs 2 Miles, we have a list of the 10 "L's" that can be the early warning signs of canine cancer:
- Appetite Loss
- Weight Loss
- Loud Odor
- Loss of Bodily Functions
- BLoody Discharge
- Labored Breathing
To learn more about the Foundation and all that they do, please visit their website.
We really do have so much to be thankful for, including you!
Thanks fur stopping by!
