As common as cancer is among animal patients – by some estimates, roughly 50 percent of all dogs and 30 percent of all cats will be affected by cancer at some point in their lives – there’s bound to be a lot of talk about the disease. You might hear about what is, or isn’t causing cancer; where it’s likely to occur; what animals it’s likely to affect and whether treatment is or isn’t effective, but hearsay often doesn’t coincide with science. Dr. Sarah Boston, a surgical oncologist, will debunk some of the common myths relating to cancer in pets and why the disease does not lend itself to simple interpretations.
