Beagls and Cancer

13121 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  TheBigFatBeagle.
I had 2 beagles (Loki and Bruiser) brothers from the same litter. Nearly 2 months ago we lost our Bruiser to cancer at the age of 6 years and 6 weeks. since then I have been going to a dog cancer site that has a lot of people helping each other to deal with this terrible disease. What I have noticed thou is the largest number of any single breed is Beagle.
Am I wrong or does it seem Beagles are at higher risk for this than other dog breeds?:confused: Or am i just seeing it like this because I have a Beagle? You know what I mean if you drive a red chevy truck you tend to notice other chevy trucks especially the red ones?
Any thoughts on this?

I'm not an expert either but I suspect they get it because of the over vaccination.
What I read better to do the titer test and vaccinate only if it is needed.
There is a good site Dr Shawn the natural vet-or something similar- I don't know the exact title but he is on Sirius radio as well.
My only problem is what do you do when you want to leave your dog at a dog daycare or boarding? They ask for the vaccination, the titer test is not enough.
