Dear Dogster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Dogster magazine, www.dogster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Why do so many dogs get cancer?
I lost Jasmine almost a year ago due to thyroid cancer and she was only 8 yrs old. Sara has been fighting mast cell tumors for over 2 years and thankfully she is happy and currently in remission. I am constantly trying to figure out what I did to have two dogs with cancer. They are two different types of cancer so the vets say it is a fluke but I still think there is something else. What I fed them, any household chemicals, environment, vaccinations, etc. There are too many young dogs with cancer. Does anyone else wonder this? I am new to the site and really do not know where to post this. I think it would be a good idea to have a cancer forum to try to dig into some common ground that might shed some light on this any ideas?
