I saw this too. It's very interesting.

I like to use this kinda info to get people to donate to canine cancer research groups (like last year when we did the Cure Canine Cancer walk and donations went to Morris Animal Foundation). I tell folks that any advances in canine cancer mean advances for humans too!

Good idea to share the article on here.

Jackie, Angel Abby's mom

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

Thank you for sharing this. The more bi-peds who know why it's so important to support groups like Morris Animal Foundation and 2 Million Dogs, the better!

This is so true.  When we informed Guiding Eyes for the Blind (where we got Ajax as a "released" 8 week old would-be guide dog) of his health issues, they sent us a kit to take to the Animal Medical Center where he is being treated.  AMC helped us with the kit and it was sent off to the Broad Institute in Cambridge MA for genome studies.

I don't know waht it is about posting to this site that causes me to lose my mind.  The point of the above comment is that the kit was designed to send a blood sample from Ajax to be sequenced for genome study of MCT in canines, eventually to be applied to humans.
