Why do so many dogs get cancer?


Almost everyone I know who has had a dog ended up losing their dog to some form of cancer, including myself. I lost one dog six months ago to cancer and just learned yesterday my other dog has bone marrow cancer...If you've ever experienced this, it's agonizing... Any ideas why cancer is so prevalent in dogs?

    Thank you. Only time will tell if they were able to remove it all. I have wondered about food as well...maybe they are processing dog food differently...since "not for human consumption" is a bit of a red flag.
