Cancer and Your Older German Shepherd|The Older He Gets, The Greater The Risk
Show Notes

Your senior German Shepherd has unwaveringly been by your side for the past ten years. He is your family and best friend, and you would do anything for him. Lately, you've noticed that he is not eating like he usually does or that he seems lethargic and depressed despite you taking him to all of his favorite places. You chalk it up to him being older and perhaps let this new behavior slide for a little bit while keeping a close eye on him. But after giving it some time, he doesn't seem to be bouncing back, so you take him to his trusted veterinarian for a full workup, including diagnostic imaging, and that's when you discover that he has cancer.

In this podcast, we'll dive deep into what causes cancer in our distinguished fur friends, the most common cancers in senior German Shepherds, treatment, and steps you can take to help prevent your senior German Shepherd from getting cancer.
