National Pet Cancer Awareness Month

November is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a time of showing extra affection to pets living with cancer. In addition, this holiday spreads awareness of how to prevent or treat cancer in our pets. LSU Vet Med's Cancer Treatment Unit treats approximately 300-400 cancer patients each year. Cancer in animals is treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
