University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine is Doing Two Clinical Studies On: Environmental Risk Factors That Could Contribute to Canine Lymphoma in Boxers and Bladder Cancer in Canines.

UW of Madison School Veterinary of Medicine is conducting two exciting clinical trials of bladder cancer in canines and lymphoma in Boxers. Bladder cancer in humans can be caused by toxic chemicals in the environment. We are looking to see if the same is true for dogs. The aim of this study is to determine whether urinary exposure to certain environmental chemicals contributes to bladder cancer risk in the dog. The other clinical is regarding canine lymphoma in Boxer’s breed. The Boxer breed is at higher risk, but the reasons for this are not understood. Lymphoma in people is associated with toxic chemicals in the environment. They are going to see if this is true with dogs.

My Friend: Standing Strong
Full Feature.  Learn and Help Raise Awareness!

My Friend: Standing Strong on Canine Osteosarcoma (Bone Cancer)

My Friend: Standing Strong is an award-winning documentary and an innovative journey through the lives of families and their dogs afflicted with canine bone cancer. The most common form of bone cancer is osteosarcoma (OSA), which accounts for approximately 5% of all canine tumors, and 80% of all dogs with OSA will die of their disease. But pet owners have options; not everything is a death sentence and not everything is a death sentence tomorrow.

My Friend: Standing Strong interweaves stories of life and hard fought decisions for a family’s best friend, along with information from highly respected veterinarians and oncologists. 

These stories will inspire the dog owner, educate and give them hope. Better treatments for the disease are just around the corner, and there truly is a solution and an option for everyone.

Viewers will walk away knowing that there is always hope; that hope can give courage to move forward, hope can inspire us to never give up, and hope can help us make the hard decisions in life.  Click here to see statement from the director.


CLEAR and Veterinary Cancer Group have partnered in a mission to change the way pet owners view cancer, while at the same time helping to educate dog owners about canine cancer… Canine Cancer 101 Facts and Fiction… It’s more like a Town Hall Meeting than an educational process..

    CLEAR is proud to support the research of Dr. Kristy Richards at Cornell University. She is working to better treat, and hopefully cure, canine lymphoma. Because lymphoma in dogs is less well studied than humans, the research tools to study canine cancer are less well developed. With the help of CLEAR, Dr. Richards’ group is working on making and characterizing these research tools, which will be available to the entire canine cancer research community after they are created. This will encourage and enable more research into canine lymphoma and hopefully speed the development of better treatments and a future cure for the disease.


    A Reason To Change is a hybrid documentary/music video about the struggles faced by both human and canine cancer patients. We hope to increase awareness about the field of Comparative Oncology, in which cancers in humans and companion animals are studied together to develop treatments that benefit both. We’re currently in the process of submitting A Reason To Change to a few different film festivals to draw attention to this important cause. This hybrid documentary has already been named Best Music Video by the Los Angeles Film Awards and has been selected for the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards!


    CLEAR is expanding, the future of CLEAR is bright and our reach keeps growing. To make this happen, donate, donate, donate!
