Dear dog lover:

All dogs, whether mixed breed or purebred, are at risk for developing cancer. According to research published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2011, approximately 30% of older dogs succumb to cancer.

Pet Cancer Awareness Month, observed each May, provides dog owners with information on treatment options, cutting-edge research, and ways to support canine cancer research.

On Wednesday, May 27 at 8:00 p.m. EDT, CHF and VetVine will be hosting a free webinar on canine cancer featuring Dr. Jeffrey Bryan. Registration is now open. Don't miss out on this great educational opportunity.

Your support of CHF is making a difference, and we are grateful!

Featured Grant: A Novel Treatment for Brain Cancer Using One Medicine
Old English Sheepdog
Drs. Simon Platt and Costas Hadjipanayis are taking a One Medicine approach to treating canine brain tumors, hoping to help both dogs and humans. In an effort to deliver chemotherapy drugs directly into brain tumors, a procedure called convection-enhanced delivery (CED) has been developed. This procedure utilizes small catheters, placed directly into tumors which allow direct drug delivery, limiting systemic drug concentrations, and therefore minimizing side effects. Learn more.
