Raise Your Pet Cancer Awareness This Month
Blue Buffalo Pet Food and PetCo have teamed up to raise awareness and further the fight against pet cancer. Statistics show that nearly half of all disease-related pet deaths are caused by cancer.
Throughout this month, PetCo consumers will be able to round up their in-store purchases to the next highest dollar or make donations of their choice. Blue Buffalo is donating $1 for every bag of Blue Buffalo food purchased in May to further pet cancer research. PetCo and Blue Buffalo are aiming to donate $1 million for the cause.
Blue Buffalo is sponsoring a nationwide Pet Cancer Awareness Tour that will stop at PetCo stores across the U.S. to provide pet owners with information on pet cancer. In addition, PetCo is declaring May 8 Pet Cancer Awareness Day at stores nationwide. From 10a-2p veterinarians will be available to talk with pet owners on pet cancer warning signs and prevention.
Look for more postings through May on prevention and treatment options, as well as various research projects currently underway to help curb the spread of cancer in our pets.
