Medical Review Process

Every member of our team of veterinarians, veterinary oncologists, cancer researchers, science journalists, and editors is careful and deliberate about what goes in every part of our site. We are medically accurate and also kind, compassionate, and complete.

We follow these guidelines:

  • We always cite peer-reviewed journals, government reports, academic institutions, and veterinary medical associations.
  • Dog cancer isn’t always the subject of peer-reviewed research. That’s why we also interview credentialed veterinary experts and practitioners in the field. Their experience (and our clinical experience) is important.
  • We list references with full citations and links to the original source on each piece.
  • Sometimes we link to other relevant pages. These links are there to make our site easier to use.
  • We have dozens of veterinarians, veterinary oncologists, cancer researchers and other experts on Our Team. Different team members research, write, and perform a final medical review for each piece. Inaccurate or unverified information is removed or clarified before it is published.
  • We do not rely on any artificial intelligence to draft our content. Every word on our site is written by a dog expert and reviewed for medical accuracy.
  • We have a zero-tolerance policy for plagiarism. Before an article or any other type of content is published, we check it with an anti-plagiarism service. If plagiarism is found, we terminate the person responsible.
  • has affiliate and advertising partnerships with businesses and shopping websites. However, these relationships have no influence on our product reviews and recommendations. Read our Advertising Disclosure to learn more.
