    I have lost 2 dogs to cancer. Is the flea medication we give our dogs killing them?

    I don't have an idea, I hope someone can shed light on this.

    Try a book called "Pukka's Promise" by Ted Kerasote. You can pick it up on Amazon for $1.99. Extremely well written and researched. Sheds light directly and indirectly over your question. Not only could flea and tick medication but also regular vaccinations, early neutering, food, toys and a whole host of other causations. Not an alarmist book or a health nut book, but will give some reasoned information for you to make your decisions. Written by a guy who hunts.

    Good question. I have lost three dogs to cancer. Two of them last November and one about 12 years ago. I live in the mountains but I'm wondering if something in the water at the ponds I take them to could have caused the tumors/cancer.
