This hour of our blogathon is sponsored by Cindy Smith, in memory of her beloved dog Muffin Smith. Thanks so much, Cindy, for supporting our efforts and caring about canine cancer.
When Hugo was diagnosed, I immediately thought the worst and ran to the internet to learn all that I could about Mast Cell Cancer. There are a lot of great resources available. For me, it really helped me realize that we weren’t going to lose Hugo immediately and that with care, he could live the rest of his life in good health.
Educating myself on the reality of canine cancer rather than giving in to the emotional rollercoaster truly helped me get through a tough time.
I’ve listed a few resources below. I hope that they help you as much as they helped me.
- WebMD: Dogs and Cancer: Get the Facts
- About.com: Signs of Cancer in Dogs
- Pet Owner’s Crash Course in Canine Mast Cell Tumors
