Canine Cancer Tops List of AKC-Funded Research for 2013

Health Research

Story at-a-glance
  • In 2013, the AKC’s Canine Health Foundation will fund 17 research grants totaling $1.7 million. Foundation funding partners include Nestlé Purina PetCare and Pfizer Animal Health.
  • Many of the grants will include a One Health component, which in this case means potential canine disease treatments may in the future also be used in human healthcare.
  • Six of the 17 research projects – and almost $750,000 of the $1.7 million – will go to canine cancer studies.

By Dr. Becker

Recently the AKC’s Canine Health Foundation Oak Grant program awarded 17 research grants totaling $1.7 million to various institutions and universities for research into canine health concerns.

The AKC’s foundation was started in 1995. Its sponsors include Nestlé Purina PetCare and Pfizer Animal Health.

AKC Foundation Grants Contain One Health Components

According to Veterinary Practice News, many of the 2013 grants include a One Health component. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the One Health initiative, the following is the organization’s mission statement:

Recognizing that human health (including mental health via the human-animal bond phenomenon), animal health, and ecosystem health are inextricably linked, One Health seeks to promote, improve, and defend the health and well-being of all species by enhancing cooperation and collaboration between physicians, veterinarians, other scientific health and environmental professionals and by promoting strengths in leadership and management to achieve these goals.

Dr. Shila Nordone, the foundation’s chief scientific officer, points out that “Naturally occurring disease in dogs is emerging as the most rigorous model for breakthroughs in treatments and therapies.”

For example, one of the 2013 grants will evaluate a new procedure to treat brain tumors in dogs – a procedure that might at some point also be used in the treatment of human brain tumors.

By Gina and Paul S. – May 10, 2010 (Corona, CA)
Our boys (Lhasas), Snoop and Gizzie, as well as our son, have always loved Marion and were so excited to see her back.  She was great with them from when they were puppies and they were always better behaved with Marion than with us. We are so excited that she is back and now that we have moved to Corona, she is closer to pet (and maybe baby) sit for vacations and special occasions

If you need a sitter or are close enough to use her service as a walker, you couldn’t ask for a better walker, dog or house sitter!!

Jan 11, 2013 – Welcome home Marion… We missed you!  We will be calling you soon!!

Marion’s Pet Sitting and Dog Walkers also offers pet products that we use ourselves for our own pets to keep them healthy and fit. You will love them.

StemPets® is a natural stem cell enhancer for dogs and other house pets. It is the specially formulated pet equivalent of our patented stem cell enhancer (AFA Concentrate) for humans, documented to support the natural release of adult stem cells from bone marrow. Also see StemEquine.

“Within two weeks of using StemPets my German Shepherd’s hips were not as stiff and she started running like a puppy.” – Jan A., IN

Our little Chiweenie suffers from pancreatitis and whenever she has a flare-up, a double dose of StemPets: For Dogs Single helps her get back to her normal self better than anything we have found, prescription or natural. – Marion A., TX

In a clinical study, AFA Concentrate naturally increased the number of circulating stem cells in the body.

Available in tasty chewable tablets, this high-quality nutritional supplement has been designed to meet the needs of dogs and other house pets.

Also see StemEquine®, an all-natural stem cell enhancer for horses. The supplement is the specially formulated equine equivalent of our patented stem cell enhancer (AFA Concentrate) for humans, documented to support the natural release of adult stem cells from bone marrow.

A clinical study revealed that this extraordinary supplement increased the number of circulating adult stem cells by approximately 3-4 million. Simply add StemEquine granules to your horses feed.

Natural Renewal StemPets supports the natural release of adult stem cells from your pet’s bone marrow. Adult stem cells play a key role in the natural renewal process. Their primary role is to maintain and repair tissue. Scientific studies have shown that increasing the number of circulating adult stem cells in the body is an important aspect of maintaining optimal health.
