Podcast: Pet Cancer Awareness with Dr. Patrick Mahaney

Our ongoing discussion about pet cancers has been quite informative and we’ve partnered up with Dr. Patrick Mahaney to continue this conversation, bringing you more on the following cancer-related questions:

  • What we can do to prevent cancer in our pets?
  • What are the most common cancers and what breeds are most likely affected by a diagnosis?
  • What are the recommended steps if you find a lump on your pet?
  • What should I expect when your pet needs chemo?

 

Dr. Mahaney will also share some helpful resources in the event that you find yourself caregiver to a pet with cancer, and will update us on any new cancer treatments coming over the horizon.

Do you have pet cancer experience to share with other pet parents that might help them through a time? We hope you’ll leave your story in the comments.
