The Ontario Veterinary College Pet Trust Fund has just created one of the cutest public service announcements we have seen in awhile. The video aims to raise awareness about canine cancer through a medley of adorable singing dogs.
According to Pet Trust’s website, “Cancer takes the lives of 1 in 4 dogs and 1 in 8 cats.” The Keep Cancer on a Leash campaign was created in part to help fund the treatment of dogs and cats with cancer at the Ontario Veterinary College Mona Campbell Animal Center at the University of Guelph. This facility is one of only a handful in Canada and the United States that do this kind of work.
Animal cancer is treated in similar ways to human cancer with a variety of methods including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, along with general pain management. Clinics like the Pet Trust fund are doing great work in advancing the field of animal cancer treatments.
For many people, pets are a member of our family and we want them to live long, happy, and healthy lives. Enjoy this sweet video and give your favorite animal a big hug!
