How to Observe National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day

  1. Educate yourself and your family

    Which dogs are more prone to canine lymphoma? What are some of the symptoms? There are answers to these questions, and in honor of this day, task yourself and your family members with researching them.

  2. Take your dog to the vet

    Your pooch probably doesn't like the veterinarian (although he probably loves the car ride!), but you owe it to your dog to schedule regular visits to the vet to keep him in tip-top shape.

  3. Rescue a dog

    There are plenty of wise, old dogs out there — many of them suffering from various ailments — that need a good, safe and comfortable home to see out their remaining days. If you can, please think about adopting an older dog.

Why National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day is Important

  1. Dogs are part of the family

    They're not just our pets. In fact, many of us don't even like to call them that. Our dogs are members of the family, and as such, deserve all the love and attention we can give them.

  2. A healthy home is a happy home

    Making sure our dogs are healthy reminds us to do the same for ourselves and the rest of our families. Regular check-ups and easy-to-do, in-home examinations make for a happy, healthy life.

  3. Dogs love us unconditionally

    We love our dogs, and there is nothing we wouldn't do for them. But, amazingly, the love we feel for them pales in comparison to how they feel about us. We must make sure that we are worthy of their love.
