Pleasant Hills Pet Hospital is participating in the 2nd Annual Bark and Bowl, benefiting the Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Canine Cancer Foundation, on Friday, November 8, 2013.

This event has a very special place in our hearts as we are bowling for Gyro, our Chief of Staff Dr. Mihalic's dog.

  Dog Gyro was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a very rare canine cancer.
  Gyro was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a very rare canine cancer.

Gyro was adopted from the Humane Society at 10 months of age. In August of 2013, at 10 years of age, he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. It is a very rare cancer, accounting for only about 1% of all animal cancers. It may affect his bone marrow, but not his spirits! Thanks to the generosity of ApoPharma, he started chemotherapy and is doing great so far! Please help us in the battle against canine cancer by supporting our team, Gyros' Gems.

Canine Cancer affects one out of every three dogs. Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The Pittsburgh chapter of The National Canine Cancer Foundation is asking for your help to fund important research grants that are working towards improving those statistics. The Bark and Bowl provides direct donation toward specific grants that target canine cancer research.
