PetScreen, a U.K.-based company providing screening for cancer and other diseases in pets, has made a donation to the Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign.
In April, the MAF kicked off the campaign, which is a $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).
PetScreen has provided financial co-sponsorship for two cancer research studies.
"We are delighted to be able to support the Morris Animal Foundation in their efforts to combat cancer in dogs," said Graeme Radcliff, founder of PetScreen.
Dr. Patricia Olson, president of MAF, said, "Morris Animal Foundation greatly appreciates PetScreen's donation to help us address the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of two. We hope other companies in the U.S., the U.K., and around the world will step up and help us fund this valuable research."
