Cancer in Dogs

Our Experience with Canine Cancer

We received our first cancer diagnosis in 2020 and our second in 2021.  Cancer rates in dogs are high and I've always known that this devastating disease who land at our doorstep someday but I still wasn't prepared.

 

I've learned a lot about canine cancer and share everything that I'm doing to extend or dogs' lives.  Sydney didn't survive her diagnosis (it was caught too late).  However, my experience with Sydney helped me catch Scout's cancer early.  Below are blog posts that I've written about our experiences.

Along with your veterinarian, you'll probably want a support group.  I recommend Hemangiosarcoma Diet & Supplement Protocols for dogs – A holistic Approach.

Canine Lymphoma

In February, 2021, Scout was diagnosed with lymphoma.  I discovered a lump in his neck region, which were his very swollen lymph nodes.  Unlike our experience with Sydney, I caught Scout's cancer early.
