Veterinarians can now order a poster to help educate their clients about the risk of cancer in dogs and to promote the Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign. The poster is free to veterinarians and can be ordered by e-mail, vetposter@MorrisAnimalFoundation.org, or by phone, (800) 243-2345.

In April, the MAF officially kicked off the Canine Cancer Campaign, a large-scale, $30 million initiative to cure cancer in dogs within the equivalent of a dog's lifetime of 10 to 20 years (see JAVMA, May 1, 2007, page 1287).

The poster charts the breeds of dogs most susceptible to cancer and the types of cancer that are prevalent in those breeds. The poster also provides an overview of the campaign, along with contact information.
