Thank you Sadie for barking in this news.

Sol, and Joy,

I listed this in the Squeaky & Fuzzy group page and good ole Dallas suggested I share this with you as you might want to put it in your blog.

Thanks for all the info you get out to us dogs and our people.


Here is some more info from U of P Veterinary School.

Vaccine Development from Dogs Newly Diagnosed with Specific Forms of Cancer

Researchers at Penn Vet are taking the first steps toward developing a vaccine for dogs with specific forms of cancer. The first step in this process is to determine whether dogs with cancer make natural immune responses to their tumors. This study is looking for dogs who have been newly diagnosed with lung, mammary (breast), bladder, or bone cancers. If your pet has been recently diagnosed with any of these cancers, is undergoing surgery to remove the mass, and has not undergone previous chemotherapy or radiation treatments, he or she may be eligible.
