I used to have a 1963 print of the Encyclopedia Britannica and there was a map of the San Francisco cancer hot spots and they were all down wind from the oil refineries.

I question if a strictly indoor pet needs vaccinations.

in europe pets are NOT neutered which is better. of course theres our poor food choices for them, as WE decide what they eat mostly. like humans lack of exercise comes into play + looking at todays general health how can you expect our pets to be any better. yes this virus is bad but there are so many obese individuals with undetected diabetes caused by theirselves, sad but true!! having a pet is costly + few pet owners can or are willing to feed them a proper diet. pet foods are barely regulated so its up to the owner to feed them decent food

Up until the virus limited trips to groc, I used the 7lb rolls or turkey, mixed with 3 or 4 bags of various vegs. Throw into big pot, cook till meat is done. Makes about 6 containers which I freeze. It gets added to good qual kibble.

I've had a couple dogs die fairly early from cancer. One in the mouth, one on the foot.

I had a purebred chocolate lab who passed away a week before his 12th birthday. He had lipomas all over the place, none were cancerous, just fatty. He had lar-par (laryngeal paralysis) which is what did him in, which is a slow nervous system paralysis that works its way up the spinal column starting with their back end getting progressively weaker until it affects their ability to breathe.
I believe a lot of the cancers in canines have to do with purebreds. I've read numerous articles about how these different cancers are more common in certain breeds, and then again more common if the dog is purebred as well. One article that stuck in my memory related the problem to what has been seen in humans that are inbred such as the English Royal family in the 1400s-1700s. These genetic problems become more common and pronounced in purebred dogs due to a lack of genetic diversity.

I went through this when my dog died of lymphoma. He was just shy of 14, and the healthiest 13.5 year old dog you would have ever seen. I was still mountain biking with him until 12, and he was still hiking 6-8 miles until he got sick. I did treat him, but unfortunately it didn't work out, and he went over the rainbow bridge after just a few weeks after he was diagnosed.

I spent a lot of time researching and wondering "why". Mostly I wondered about the food. He was on Orijen dry food for his whole life. Ultimately I just figured that it's a function of living so long, it was more likely that he'd get cancer. I also figured if he was that healthy late in life, the food must have been OK.

Dogs just died back in the day. The got sick one week and would slowly die. Nobody knew what they died from.

Cheap dog food probably doesn't help either. I buy quality stuff for our dogs. My aunt's dog made it to 17-1/2. My mom's cat was 19. But my cat only made it until 9 last year, bad kidneys. Back in the day we wouldn't have known why my cat died (I had him put down before he was suffering too much).
