“Advances in human oncology research are as a result now being translated to dogs, leading to better cancer diagnosis, treatment and genetic screening. Cancer is one of the biggest killers of dogs in the UK, accounting for one in five deaths and killing 190,000 dogs a year.

Dr David Haworth, a veterinary consultant, believes we are now entering an era where puppies born today will be able to fend off cancer. True cures are a reality for some types of cancer, he said, and life-extending tests and drugs mean dogs will now most likely die ‘with’, not ‘from’, cancer, as they age.”
