Dr. Gillian Dank on Animal Health with Heart

May 28, 2021

Owning a pet can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience. But the benefits of pet ownership come with responsibilities – especially if your pet is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease like cancer.

The Veterinary Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 4 dogs will develop cancer at some point, and almost 50% of dogs over age 10 will develop cancer. Fortunately, half of all canine cancers are treatable if caught early enough.

On this episode of HUJI Bites, we speak with Dr. Gillian Dank, a board-certified veterinary oncologist and senior lecturer at the Koret School of Veterinary Medicine – Israel’s only veterinary school. She established the Oncology Department at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital where students and researchers are finding the best treatment and care for our animal companions.
