NCCF sells stained glass pink paws to raise awareness of canine cancer.

The National Canine Cancer Foundation needs dogs for participation in a two-year observational study on the effects of natural supplements in combating cancer. The target start date is May 2012.

The study is funded by Elimay supplements, and will take place in Dallas, Houston, Phoenix and San Diego. Each dog will be required to go to the vet every three months. All supplements will be provided by Elimay. In many cases, vet visits will be paid for or discounted.

Three groups of dogs are needed:

Group 1
Healthy dogs ages 2 to 6 years are eligible. Each dog will take Elimay Longevity, Elimay Omegas and Elimay Immunity. (Dosage to be determined.)

Group 2
Dogs ages 4 to 9 years with history of cancer in their lines and/or breed are eligible. Each dog will take Elimay Longevity, Elimay Omegas,  and Elimay Immunity. (Dosage to be determined.)

Group 3
Dogs of any age with a verifiable diagnosis of cancer are eligible. Each dog will take an Elimay supplement(s) to be determined by doctors at Elimay. (Dosage to be determined.)

For more information or to participate in this study, contact NCCF co-founder Sara Nice at snice@wearethecure.org.

Please include your location, age and breed of your dog, which group the dog would fit into and why you would like to participate.
