Canine Cancer Research USA


Steve Katz of Canine Cancer Research USA joins us for one hour to talk about this important subject. January 26th, 10 am PST. Listen live or to the podcast.


“Cancer is cancer regardless of species, and discoveries in either dogs or humans will have rapid acceptance in the other species.”– Dr. Stephen Withrow, one of the world’s leading canine oncologists


“Cancer kills up to half of all dogs more than ten years old.”

— Shawn Messonnier, DVM (Preventing and Treating cancer in dogs)

“Each of our own pet dogs is at risk to suffer the devastating effects of cancer. One in four dogs will die of cancer and cancer is the number one cause of disease-related death in dogs over the age of two.”

— Dr. Patricia N. Olson, CEO and President of Morris Animal Foundation

“We can learn more about cancer by working together. This program will advance our understanding of cancer in both animals and people.”

— Dr. Douglas Yee, Director, Masonic Cancer Center

“Cancer is the leading cause of death among dogs and cats in the U.S., Europe and Japan. In fact, your pet is more likely to get cancer than you are. More than half of all dogs will die of cancer, and some breeds have even higher rates of death from the disease.”

— Dr. Karen Becker, DVM

“One of the biggest oversights in modern medicine is the role of the immune system in cancer. Sure, it is researched, but there is almost no practical use of this knowledge in actual clinical medicine. If a veterinary client were to bring up the fact that systemic cancer almost always creates immune suppression to an average vet, there would be little actionable response.”

— Dr. Demian Dressler, DVM
