When her owner noticed a lump on Mika’s leg, her veterinarian diagnosed injection-site sarcoma, a cancer. Mika underwent successful surgery to have the lump removed, but her cancer returned, according to Petco Love. So, this time, her owner took her to the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. Because of the Petco Love & Blue Buffalo Pet Cancer Treatment Fund, Mika received the care she needed.
“Many pets greatly benefit from radiation and chemotherapy after a cancer diagnosis, but affording treatment can be difficult for some owners,” said Dr. Meg Thompson, director of the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. “We are grateful to Petco Love and Blue Buffalo for a grant that alleviates a large portion of this stress during an already challenging time for pet parents.” Petco Love and Blue Buffalo have donated more than $16 million to help fight pet cancer.
