Petco Foundation Pet Cancer Awareness

When a pet gets cancer, it's devastating.

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.

Early Detection Tips

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.

  • Abnormal, persistent swelling
  • Sores that do not heal
  • Loss of weight
  • Loss of appetite
  • Bleeding or discharge from any body opening
  • Offensive odor
  • Difficulty eating or swallowing
  • Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina
  • Persistent lameness or stiffness
  • Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating

If your pet has any of these early warning signs, you should take him or her to your veterinarian as soon as possible for a more complete examination. In addition, you should keep your pet away from environmental toxins like lawn fertilizers and surface and rug cleaners that have warning labels relative to children and pets. Many veterinarians see a link between environmental toxins and cancer.

Where the money goes

Pet cancer is a deadly disease and the treatment and research can be costly. We are proud to support these organizations who directly work with pet parents and communities impacted by pet cancer:
