Dogs, our faithful companions, come in a myriad of breeds, each with its unique characteristics, temperament, and health considerations. While canine cancer can affect any breed, certain breeds have shown a predisposition to specific types of cancer.

Cancer in dogs occurs when normal cells undergo uncontrolled growth, forming masses or tumors that can be benign or malignant. Various factors contribute to cancer development in dogs, including genetics, environmental influences, and breed-related predispositions.
