In Brooklyn, Dr. Post, a veterinary oncologist explains that animal cancer is treatable but since cancer is the most common cause for death in older animals, it leaves pet owners asking questions...

What symptoms are signs of cancer? And if your pet does have cancer, what are your options? How do you treat pet cancer?

Dr. Post, of the Veterinary Oncology and Hematology Center, is an expert on the topic and K9 in the City asks him the questions... so you don't have to!

I believe cancer is treatable and curable in animals. With a proper diet or a raw or healthy homemade diet the pet can be cancer free. Just like in humans though vaccines and commercial food can cause cancer, slowly but surely as Cancer is one of the most common reasons animals are dieing so early.

I believe cancer in animals (and humans) is definitely treatable if given a healthy natural diet. It could even be prevented as well. We are what we eat and what our bodies absorb (medicines, toxins in the air, etc.), and if we make the changes for a healthier lifestyle, we can overcome these diseases.
