Blue Buffalo, Petco and Petco Foundation are partnering together for the sixth annual Pet Cancer Awareness Month in May to raise money to fight this terrible disease. Our goal is to raise $2 million, and with your help we can do it.
If cancer is detected early it can be treated more effectively, so it’s important to check your pet regularly for the 10 Early Warning Signs as recommended by the Veterinary Cancer Society.
