Cancer is a disease that touches many of us, but it's not just a human disease. Dogs get cancer at roughly the same rate as humans. Cancer is the leading cause of death in older dogs and is responsible for nearly 50% of the deaths of dogs 10 years and older. Click here to watch a video on the UT Veterinary Educational TV YouTube channel that explains more about canine cancer.

PetSafe is holding the third K9 Cancer Walk later this month. Proceeds from the event will help the Morris Animal Foundation and their effort to help dogs lead longer, healthier, cancer-free lives. One of our board-certified veterinary radiation oncologists was on WBIR to talk about the walk. Click here to watch the video.
All dog lovers are invited to join Team UTCVM for the PetSafe K9 Cancer Walk. Walk with your dog or walk in memory of a beloved pet. The event will be held Sunday, September 22, 2013 at the Cove at Concord Park. The opening ceremony and walk begin at 1:00 p.m.
