I'm a board Certified Veterinary Oncologist and owner of the Canine Cancer Academy. This week we’re going to discuss the research process and connections to why cancer develops in certain dog breeds. Are you curious why certain dogs develop cancer? Why cancer is so common in dogs or how you might be able to decrease cancer risk for your dog? This week I'm very excited to bring you Dr. Kelly Diehl, a Board Certified Veterinary Internist and Senior Director of Science and Communication for the Morris Animal Foundation, where she has been for six and half years. Now fully engaged in the largest canine study, called the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. In this episode you’ll learn more about: This study follows over 3,000 Golden Retrievers over the course of their lifetime. One of the largest, most comprehensive canine, prospective studies to date. The risk of cancer is actually 60% in the golden retriever breed. We have at least one dog in each of the 48 contiguous United States. Documentation is taken is great detail on the nutritional, environmental and genetic risk factors for cancer and other diseases. The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is projected to cost roughly $32 million dollars. Listen in for more details about the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study and learn more about why the study is tracking whether these dogs live in an environment with carpet, whether they eat vegetables, whether they swim in ponds, or live with a smoker, and how this data is being collected and processed to determine what causes cancer in dogs.

In this interview you will learn: what drove Kelly to become a veterinarian and how she got involved with the MAF about the founding of MAF and what their mission was formed about how Dr. Mark L. Morris Jr, the founder's son was the first to educate people on the importance of nutrition for dogs, cats and other animals that their supported scientists helped to develop the first vaccine for deadly illnesses such as canine parvovirus, feline leukemia and the Potomac horse fever The Morris Animal Foundation was founded in 1948. Since that time they have invested in more than $100 million dollars toward 2,400+ studies addressing the emerging and established health challenges of a variety of species. Dr. Kelly Diehl gives us some examples of a few of these studies so we can get a scope of the research they fund. We would love it if you could listen in!
