Cancer is unfortunately all too common in pets. One in four dogs die of the disease, according to the Morris Animal Foundation. Roughly half of all dogs over 10 years of age are believed to succumb to the disease, and cancer is also a leading cause of death in older cats. Just as in humans, there are many types of cancer that can affect any part of the body, and any system. Dr. Kelvin Kow, an board-certified veterinary oncologist, will discuss common cancers seen in pets and some of the treatment options now available.
