How do I check my dog for cancer?​

It is reported that 1 in every 3 dogs will develop cancer. Early detection is key. Our partners at the National Canine Cancer Foundation recommend checking your dog on the 14th of every month or at the same time you give flea/tick medicine. Use the pictures and tips below to help you check every area of your dog.

Canine cancer is not a fun subject, but it is very real and, sadly, all too common. A clean diet and limited exposure to toxins can reduce the chance of your furry friend getting cancer, but there isn’t a clear answer on how to avoid it all together. Early detection is key.
