In recent years, multiple studies have found that purebred dogs have more to offer cancer research than just their sniffing noses.
In the recent Popular Science article, “Purebred dogs are helping us cure cancer,” Sara Chodosh explores the ways in which purebred dogs are helping cancer research for both canines and humans. Chodosh explains, “Roughly a quarter of all purebred dogs die of cancer, and 45 percent of those who live past the age of 10 succumb to one variety or another. Modern chemotherapies have allowed some degree of these dogs to get treatment, just like a human would. Those therapies work so well because canine cancers are so close to human tumors.”Court Case Judgment Prediction Tool Please try out the Court Case Prediction Tool for free
