In the above picture from Canine T-Cell Project’s Facebook page… Trilly a Gordon Setter is the very first to receive a vaccine being tested to prevent cancer in dogs back in May.
Very exciting news! As with all new medicine it will take some years of testing. Dogs just like humans
can get different types of cancer, and surprisingly they are very similar. So they decided to start testing there.
We have all had some experience with the challenges and heartache of cancer…. A friend, a loved one, or pet.
This would truly be a scientific miracle if this could be perfected and used on both people and their four legged friends.
Because there are so many different types of cancer, this vaccine doesn’t seem to target one specific type. But hopefully this will be successful in helping prevent cancer altogether
So to think there might be a slight chance of preventing cancer with a vaccine is really an amazing breakthrough!! Hoping for the best.
