Golden Retriever Lifetime Study — Understanding Cancer Better

Updated: June 22nd, 2021


If we can catch cancer earlier, treatments work better. The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is giving us massive amounts of data, and Dr. Janet Patterson-Kane is managing it all.

Today’s episode of Dog Cancer Answers is a deep and wide-ranging conversation with Janet Patterson-Kane, Chief Scientific Officer at the Morris Animal Foundation.

Dr. Patterson-Kane has decades of experience in researching cancer. She is also a dog mom who had to face cancer herself.

It changed her life — just like it changed yours and my life.

Her dog Satu’s ordeal with osteosarcoma just strengthened her resolve to understand cancer better.

Because when we understand better, we can treat better!

Whether she’s talking about the data the Morris Animal Foundation is collecting in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study, the history of the foundation, or her own story, you’ll find this episode a particularly interesting edition of Dog Cancer Answers.

You can read the transcript on the episode page on the Dog Cancer Answers website.
