Our Work

The Australian Animal Cancer Foundation funds valuable equipment and research essential to the treatment and study of cancer in companion animals.

The publication of this valuable research is made available to researchers all over the world, fast tracking their work and collectively taking us closer to a cure. 

Research funded by the Foundation has included:

  • Completion and publication of a prospective study into a novel radiation treatment protocol for feline oral squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Collaborative research with The University of Queensland and The Diamantina Institute into haemangiosarcoma (HSA) in dogs. This work has provided some valuable information about HSA proteomics.

Approximately half of human cancer patients undergo radiation therapy and many companion animals now have access to this treatment option. There are approximately 100 facilities in the Northern Hemisphere that are actively treating animals with radiation therapy.
