November is also a month for Pet Cancer Awareness. Each year, about 6 million dogs are diagnosed with cancer. The Animal Cancer Foundation provides a wealth of knowledge on how cancer impacts your pet, your wallet and the decisions you have to make for your dog.

November 1st is National Cook for Your Pet Day! Get ready to make your dog an appropriate meal! This is a really fun and safe way to change up your dog's eating routine. Cook up some carrots and chicken without any spices (these can be dangerous for dogs) and then throw some blueberries on the side for a fun dinner that you made from scratch.

November 4th through the 10th is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Month, so take some time to visit your local shelter and volunteer your time or put together a fundraiser to help them raise some much needed funds!

November 7th is National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day, another important aspect of Pet Canine. It is important to know and understand the signs of symptoms of cancer in dogs because they cannot tell you when something is wrong!

Thanksgiving Day has always been the presentation and airing of the AKC's Dog Show! Check out the show to see some of your favorite dog breeds!
