The term cancer
refers to a large number of diseases whose only common feature is uncontrolled cell growth and proliferation. Although cancer can affect any dog of any age, there does however appear to be a pre-disposition among certain breeds or families of dogs to develop specific types of cancer. Anecdotal evidence would seem to indicate that Cesky terriers may be pre-disposed to lymphoma (cancer of the white blood cells).
The clustering of specific cancers in breeds and families suggests that there may be a genetic
component in the development of the disease.
The Animal Cancer Trust
is a registered charity totally committed to funding
the fight against cancer in our pets.
Cesky Terrier is diagnosed with Cancer (of any kind) please take the time to fill in a Cancer Report
