From improving lymphoma diagnosis to understanding sudden death syndrome, we fund science that aims to tackle some of the most pressing issues in canine medicine and create better outcomes for all dogs today, and in the future.

1 in 4 Dogs will get cancer in their lifetimes

Shocking statistics tell us that 25% of ALL dogs will get cancer in their lifetime, and 50% of dogs over the age of 10 will also be diagnosed.

Research into this devastating disease will help to turn the tide against canine cancer and result in happier, healthier lives for our four-legged best friends.

Unfortunately, research into canine cancer is severely underfunded but we have committed to ensuring this vital work continues to happen.

Only by working together, with the latest advancements in science, can we hope to see a future where our dogs are free from cancer.
