Oncowaf - A website for dogowners with questions about cancer
Oncowaf is an initiative of Laetitia Cicchelero, a veterinarian with a passion for (research in) oncology. In her experience as a veterinarian and researcher, she noticed that there are many questions about what cancer means in dogs and how one can deal with this. This site has been created to provide concrete and independent answers.
In order to provide answers to these questions, veterinarians active in oncology collected relevant and independent information on this site.
For example, information can be found about:
• which dog breeds are more susceptible than others to develop certain tumor types
• tips on communicating with the vet
• how to support the dog during his treatment
• what the vet can do for the dog
• ongoing clinical trials
In addition, the Facebook group allows dog owners with questions about cancer to exchange questions, experiences, and tips among themselves.
The site content is intended to be complementary and does in no way replace the advice of the veterinarian. Both the site content and the Facebook groups are available in Dutch, French and English.
