At the core of being a pet parent is, first and foremost, concern and diligence for our pets’ health. BlogPaws is proud to celebrate Pet Health Awareness Month throughout November.

My Friend: Changing the Journey, is a documentary that celebrates the fight against canine lymphoma and will be premiering on Saturday, November 1st, in Glendale, California.

 Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research (CLEAR) Foundation also holds a special place in the hearts of one of our very own, Dr. Patrick Mahaney. Dr. Mahaney is a long-time BlogPaws supporter and speaker along with being a veterinarian and Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. He writes for several sites, including petMD. His dog is also a cancer survivor.

“Considering Cardiff is undergoing chemotherapy treatment for lymphoma, I was psyched to be asked to contribute to a documentary being filmed by the Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research (CLEAR) Foundation,” Mahaney says. “It’s been over six months since we began the long journey of Cardiff’s cancer diagnosis and treatment, but the end has been reached and the outcome is ideal.

On June 25, 2014 Cardiff finished his course of University of Wisconsin-Madison Canine Lymphoma Protocol (CHOP) chemotherapy and had a repeat abdominal ultrasound, revealing no evidence of new masses nor any other concerning abnormalities inside his abdomen.”

Here’s a trailer for the movie:

My Friend: Changing the Journey is a ground-breaking documentary that will take dog lovers on their own informative journey of awareness and hope as it weaves interviews from highly respected Oncologists, Veterinarians and Canine Care Professionals throughout three inspiring stories of dogs who are battling lymphoma.

Now What

Only 3% of dogs diagnosed with canine lymphoma are treated?

Do you think it’s due to the human’s fear (and knowledge of humans who have battled cancer with debilitating side-effects), misinformation or what?

I can’t imagine not doing anything.
