Dr. Gerald Post - Canine and Human Oncology

Dr. Gerald Post, DVM, MEM, DACVIM (Oncology) served as a guest speaker at the International Congress of the Society for Melanoma Research, last November. Dr. Post was the first veterinary oncologist to be invited to this meeting and to serve as a leading voice in how comparative oncology, in canines, can relate to human cancer and serve as an integral model for research being done in oncology.
Dr. Post is one of only two hundred board-certified veterinary oncologists, in the United States. He graduated with distinction from Cornell University, in 1983, and received his DVM degree from the University of Minnesota, in 1988. In 1991, he completed a residency in Oncology at the Animal Medical Center in New York City and, in 1992, became a Diplomat of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. Today, Dr. Post is a practicing veterinary internal physician in the tri-state area and is a principle owner of The Veterinary Cancer Center (VCC), in Norwalk, CT. This is a world class facility that specializes in veterinary practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in animals.
Currently, the complex biology of cancer recurrence and metastasis integral in human cancer patients are not properly measurable in the conventional mouse models used in cancer drug development and research. Dr. Post agrees with Robert Weinberg's quote from Nature Biotechnology (Vol. 29 No.3 - March 2011) "Right now, to my mind, the major logjam in moving drugs ahead is that the preclinical testing of drugs is still so primitive."
...
Dr. Post understands that funding organizations must recognize and embrace the need for new cancer research tools and assist in their development.

"Just like with human patients, we're getting far better at helping animals with cancer live a whole lot longer and a whole lot better," says Dr. Gerald Post, veterinary oncologist at The Veterinary Cancer Center in Norwalk, Connecticut.

...
"They're really revolutionizing cancer treatment," says Post.
...
"We're getting better at chemotherapy protocols that are more specific to the sub-type of cancer the dog has," Post explains. "Veterinarians also increase or decrease dosage based on how the pet is handling it and how the disease is responding."
Reduced Side Effects If the cancer is caught early and chances of survival are high, in this era it's often worth the fight.
"The very word 'chemo' evokes thoughts of 'I'd never do that to my pet'," says Post.
...
"It's incredibly important for cancer to be caught early," Post advises. "Early detection does more than anything else to extend the life of your retriever."
According to Post, here are the top 10 symptoms to watch for: swollen lymph nodes; an enlarging or changing lump; abdominal distension; chronic weight loss; chronic vomiting or diarrhea; unexplained bleeding; a dry, non-productive cough; lameness; straining to urinate; and oral odor.
Note that these ailments can have a variety of causes that aren't necessarily cancer-related. Still, they warrant a veterinary examination.
Prevention Post says the best way to prevent cancer is by ensuring your dog eats a balanced diet and gets plenty of exercise-I assume your duck dog already has that covered. Sound like the same advice given to humans? There's a reason for that.
"Dogs are affected by the same cancers as people," says Post.
