One in three people gets cancer. One in four dogs got cancer. In western countries where dogs are treated very well, dogs are fed processed foods mostly. These processed foods are the prime suspects for one of the causes for cancer in dogs. In particular, it is the red meats used and the preservatives contained in the dog foods which are probably the sources of carcinogenicity. Healthy dog foods include all foods healthy for human beings with many exceptions, like bone-in fish, chocolates, coffee, avocados. There is a long list of human foods which cannot be fed to dogs. Veterinary physicians should regularly check the mouths of dog, for early detection of mouth cancer. Like for humans, early detection of cancer leads to better recovery from the disease with proper therapy.
