    My focus is cancer in humans. There are a lot of targeted therapies now but still no cure. There will never be a one size fits all for cancers as they are so varied.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I think it may well be a while off yet before we have cures. The cancers dogs get are mostly the same as humans. There is a lot of interest in comparative oncology around the world. In Australia we have a trial for osteosarcoma that is at five vet oncologists as well as human hospitals in Brisbane. They are trialing Auranofin to potentially stop the spread to the lungs of both dogs and humans.

    It's very well to to give stats and tell people of the wonderful things happening with cancer research but the facts remain the same...our dogs are still dying and until there's a cure I'll do the best thing for my dog and that's putting them to sleep.

    If you had a dog with cancer and see what the poor dog goes though I'm sure you'd do the same. Some people go to extraordinary lengths to prolong their dogs life but death still occurs...I wouldn't put my dog through that for a few more months.

    One day there will be a cure for all cancers I'm sure but till then we must do the right thing by our beloved dogs and that's not to let them suffer.

    Why do some dogs get cancer while others don't...why is Hemangiosarcoma most common in GSDs than other breeds but not all GSDs get it.

    My GSD Rex is nearly 12 years old and it looks like he will die of old age (I hope) so why didn't he get this cancer...he did come from a different line and breeder....these are the questions I want answered.

    Thank you for the lovely videos of Jade. A totally gorgeous and very much loved dog. Not all dogs as you would know find such a wonderful family to live with. It is for dogs like Jade we must find the answers. Whilst this might be a way off we have to start somewhere and give the scientists and opportunity to find answers.

    All the questions you ask yourself about the haemangiosarcoma and the GSD are exactly the same questions the scientists ask and are looking to find answers for
