Could a Vaccine Prevent Dog Cancer? │ Dr. Nancy Reese Q&A

Have you ever wondered why you can take your dog to the vet to get vaccines to help protect them from diseases like parvo, rabies, and kennel cough? Yet, there hasn’t been a vaccine developed that would help protect them from getting cancer. This week’s episode sheds light on the complex topic of cancer prevention and vaccines.

SHOW NOTES

Veterinarian, Dr. Nancy Reese joins us to talk about preventative veterinary medicine. She shares her expertise with listeners about the science behind existing preventative vaccines and explains how researchers and scientists are using your dog’s cancer markers in their DNA to help them discover target therapies, and hopefully, one day reduce or eliminate the susceptibility of your dog from getting cancer.
