It’s sad and devastating when you find out your dog has cancer, but you shouldn’t lose hope. In fact, and estimated 6 million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year. And while dogs all across the country battle cancer every day, some do end up winning the battle. Here are 15 dogs that have beat cancer and are trying to spread the news to those around them.
Lost the Battle, but Won the War
This dog lost one of the battles with cancer, losing a leg to the disease. Ultimately though, he won the war and is now cancer free. Like many dogs that have had to endure cancer, this dog had one of his legs amputated. This is usually done to get rid of the cancerous cells that have taken up residence in that particular limb.
Randy the Fighter
Randy is a boxer that is ready to kick cancer’s butt. But first, he looks like he needs a hug. So, hugs first and then cancer.
This is Daisy, a dog who beat cancer naturally. For her chemo treatments, Daisy used an herbal form of chemo therapy. And while it was never guaranteed to work, it actually did the trick and now Daisy is cancer-free!
A Call From the Vet
This dog’s owner received a call from the vet. Guess what? He is now cancer free. Any dog that can survive cancer is amazing in my book.
Cancer Support Dog
Not only did this dog survive cancer, he now visits a cancer care center and acts as a support animal for people with cancer. He has the unique perspective of surviving cancer himself and so can better understand those still going through their fight with cancer.
24 Weeks Later
This dog went through the chemo therapy process for 24 weeks. He survived and is now cancer-free. Congratulations!
While this dog’s surgery to remove cancer and the chemo therapy was expensive, costing over $4,000, it was totally worth it to his owner. Now, the love and support the dog got from everyone was priceless.
Before getting cancer, this dog stopped a robbery in progress while her family was sleeping at night. Now, she has won another battle, against cancer, and has been cancer-free for six months.
Here is Abby, a pit bull who attacked cancer and one. Abby also is all about defeating stereotypes as the only thing she has attacked is cancer. She ended up winning this battle, so good for her!
The German shepherd of this man’s friend beat cancer today. This is the best of news and I hope he has many more years to come!
Doug’s Last Day of Chemo
This is Doug and he is celebrating his very last day of chemo. It also looks like Doug has survived cancer with all of his limbs intact. And while it is not uncommon for a dog to survive cancer, often they end of losing at least one limb in the process.
This dog has been cancer-free for eight months. This is an incredible accomplishment and worthy of a congratulations.
This dog just graduated from chemo therapy. In fact, this picture was taken of him on his last day at the Alliance Animal Hospital. He even got a little stuffed animal to celebrate his accomplishment.
The Last Pill
