Give back this Holiday Season!


When I think of Cancer, I think of my family members that have expired and left this earth and took their life early. I guess I didn't really realize how many pets get cancer too.

There are some common types of canine cancer:
  • Mouth Cancer

  • Prostate Cancer

  • Bone Cancer

  • Mast Cell Tumor Cancer


  • Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) has named November as Pet Cancer Awareness Month! This year is the fifth year that VPI works hard and diligent to raise awareness of Pet cancer and educating pet owners on resources and support.


    In the last couple of years VPI has reported the rise of pet cancer. VPI started their awareness in 2005 and since then have raised a large amount of money to aid in the help of pet cancer and pet cancer awareness.

    If you are a VPI policy holder and a pet owner, you are urged to contribute to this wonderful cause by buying a VPI limited-edition Pet Cancer Awareness dog collar. The beautiful collars with the Cancer Society logo is available in 4 sizes.You can also find a great cancer awareness pet accessories at Posh Puppy!

    All money raised by VPI during the month of November will be donated to the Animal Cancer Foundation (ACF). ACF is a non profit organization that works to help in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer in people and our pets.

    For more information on signs and symptoms of cancer in our four legged friends, talk to your vet or read here! However you help, just help this wonderful cause.
