American Kennel Club and AKC Canine Health Foundation Release Podcast about Canine Cancer Treatments [Thursday, September 10, 2009]

Genome Barks welcomes Dr. Jaime Modiano, a member of the faculty of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Modiano has spent the last 15 years of his career looking at the mechanisms that are responsible for the origin and progression of canine cancer. Dr. Modiano's current research focuses on better cancer therapies, singling out the canine immune system as a treatment for cancers that are in the process of spreading to various regions of the body.

Sometimes boring is necessary - thanks for sharing this link. Cancer in dogs has affected so many of us.

Tail wags and have a great weekend, the OP Pack

yup. i lost mags to cancer too. funny tho, when the western med doc gave her 6 months to live, i put her on holistic care and she live 3.5 years longer-- all quality years. long walks, downtown visits, river swims, etc. so go figure. growing up, we didn't lose dogs to cancer. mostly it was old age, but not something like cancer. it's weird to be so prevelant now. me thinks its our own doing (foods we eat, environment, etc.)

Thanks for sharing. We should add this to our mom's iTunes feed because she loves podcasts and probably doesn't listen to enough dog ones.
