The presentation will explain the importance of preventative cancer recommendations for canine patients in the primary care setting. Several common canine cancers have been shown to be related to environmental chemical exposures. This presentation will identify specific environmental chemical exposures associated with specific cancers in dogs, or in people with analogous cancers.

Environmental prevention of bladder cancer and lymphoma in dogs
Bladder cancer and lymphoma have strong links to environmental chemical exposures in people, and we are finding that the same may be true for dogs. This session will present the evidence for specific chemical exposures and these cancers in dogs and provide practical recommendations to make to owners of high-risk breeds.

After attending this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of preventative cancer recommendations for canine patients in the primary care setting.
  • Name several common canine cancers that are related to environmental chemical exposures.
  • Identify specific environmental chemical exposures associated with specific cancers in dogs, or in people with analogous cancers.
  • Prepare a list of environmental questions to ask dog owners when specific cancers are diagnosed.
  • Prepare a list of environmental recommendations for puppy visits with owners of dog breeds at high risk for specific cancers.
