I researched animal cancer while in college pursuing my agriscience/general science degree in education and found that animal cancer has been linked to the rampant use of lawn chemicals--especially for dogs since they spend ample time sniffing the ground, rolling around, etc. on sprayed areas. Spraying that poison everywhere is very popular in my area and guess what....both humans and animals have a very high cancer rate here. I have a neighbor who sprays his lawn incessantly and he has lost three dogs to cancer since we've lived here.

I would also blame the GMO garbage as well, as you stated.

Don't forget the fact that many of these pets are simply living longer lives...increasing the odds that they end up developing a cancer. Could garbage foods, contaminants, and unnecessary chemical additives add to the risk? Probably. Proving the direct link is the problem.

It must be the GMO because there never was any cancer before GMO.



There has been a lot of research done and no one really knows what causes cancer. Some chemicals and some genetics appear to be linked, but only sort of because plenty of people and animals are exposed to the same chemicals or have the genetics and never do get cancer.

I constantly hear of 6-8 year old dogs getting cancer. Common denominator seems to be cheap GMO grain food.



Interesting topic.



Too bad it would be too expensive to feed all of our dogs grain free food and high quality meats everday
