According to ZooToo.com, a cancer survivor whose dog provided him comfort during the ordeal is offering free cancer consultations for any pet in the U.S.
Jack Stephens, founder of Pets Best Insurance, says his dog Spanky was the source of emotional comfort during his bout with throat cancer. He says to give something back, he's offering free cancer consultations to any pet within the U.S. through Oncura Partners. The national firm specializes in pet cancer.
Stephens says the consultation will be underwritten through his company, Pets Best Insurance. But families do not need to have a policy with his company. He added that pet owners will need a referral from their vet in order to obtain the consult.
He also says this idea stemmed from the fact that half of cats and dogs over 10 years-old lose their lives to cancer.
