Knowing It Exists Is Not Enough!
Be your dog’s hero. You are your dog’s first line of defense against canine cancer.
Every 14th of the month is Check Your Dog Day.
Early detection is the key to chase away k9 cancer.
Take 10 minutes of your time to check your dog from nose to tail.
👃🏽 Nose – is it symmetrical? Is there any drainage? Are there any lesions?
👀 Eyes – Any abnormal drainage? Increased redness? Change in shape?
👄 Mouth – Are there any lesions or masses? Is the roof of the mouth uneven? How are the gums and teeth?
💁♀️Jawline – Is it symmetrical? Is the texture consistent? Is your dog more sensitive there?
👂🏾 Ears – Is there any swelling? Foul smell?
👣 Feet – Check the nails and the nail bed. Is there any excessive heat in the pad?
😮 Hiney – Check for any masses or lumps.
🐕 Don’t forget the legs & belly too!

Thanks for sharing the wonderful post and great ideas. I own a Golden Retriever, he is 16 months, believe me, my last 16 months have been the best time ever so far in my life. Life has been so positive since my friend came in.
