Cancer remission in dogs is a topic no one wants to talk about, but it’s something all pet owners should be aware of.
A dog can be diagnosed with cancer at any time during his or her lifetime. The good news is that most cancers are treatable, and many can be cured. In fact, dogs can live an average of four years after being diagnosed with cancer. But there are some types of cancer that may not respond as well to treatment and require more aggressive treatment plans.
Cancer remission in dogs is possible when an owner has sought out the best medical treatment for their dog, but it doesn’t always mean that the disease has been completely eradicated. Remission simply means that the disease has gone into remission—meaning it’s stopped growing and spreading—but it doesn’t mean a cure has been found.
It’s important to note that not all cancers respond to traditional treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy like they do in humans, so it’s important to consult a veterinarian before beginning any type of treatment plan for your dog’s cancer remission.
