October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it seems every year there is one more person I know that is fighting the disease. May we all ban together with these ladies and surround them with our care support! What I wasn't very aware of is that it is possible for our furry friends to receive a similar cancer diagnosis. I guess it makes sense that they can, I just hadn't given it much thought. Mammary cancer is more common in cats than dogs, but it can occur in both and quickly spread to other organs. So while donning our pink attire in a show of support and kinship with our human friends, let us not forget our dog and cat friends battling the same disease.
