Cancer Research to Benefit Pet Animals and People

Research Mission Cancer is a major cause of death in older dogs and humans. The goal of the PCOP is to change this.

Urinary Bladder Cancer Research Urinary bladder cancer has been a focus of research efforts in the PCOP for many years. The outlook for dogs with this cancer has improved substantially, and successful work in dogs is being translated into humans.

Canine Brain Tumors Brain tumors are another emphasis of the PCOP’s research, and efforts are focused on both MRI detection of brain tumors and improving the surgical and medical therapies that are available.

Canine Lymphomas Canine lymphomas are a research focus area for the PCOP. We are actively seeking new and better ways to diagnose and treat these very common canine cancers.

Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium (COTC) In the COTC, veterinary oncologists, including those in the PCOP, are working together for rapid and successful clinical studies in pet animals with cancer.

Canine Brain Tumor Treatment and Brain Tumor MRI Research Program The PVM Canine Brain Tumor Research Program is a research program involving all aspects of canine brain tumor research: diagnosis using MRI, surgery, chemotherapy and other post-operative therapies.

How can you help in our fight against cancer?

Clinical TrialsEnter your pet with cancer in a clinical trial. Although we are making considerable progress in the fight against cancer, we still have a long way to go. Often, the best new information about cancer comes from animals participating in a clinical trial. We will announce clinical trials on this website. If you do not live in our region of the country, you may also check with the Veterinary Cancer Society to learn about trials in your area.

Donate to canine cancer research Make a donation. Our program depends heavily on grant support and private donations. If you wish to make a donation to support our continuing investigations of canine and feline cancer, please contact the Office of Advancement at 765-494-6304 or donate directly to Bladder Cancer Research for Canines here.

Spread the wordSpread the word about pet animal cancer. Many pet owners do not realize that pet dogs and cats develop cancer. Many also do not know that cancer in pet dogs and cats is often treatable. Help increase the awareness about pet animal cancer. Encourage others to visit our website and other websites to learn about this challenge and join our efforts to make progress against this devastating disease.
