      Why are golden retrievers getting cancer?

      The Morris Animal Foundation is conducting a study to find out what's causing golden retrievers to get cancer.

      They plan to monitor golden retrievers throughout their lifetime to try and pinpoint why they get cancer. They're looking for owners with a pup younger than two to enroll in the study.

      They must be able to prove three generations back, and the plan is to do yearly blood work and exams.

      "They're one of my favorite breeds. They're great dogs, great family dogs, great companions, and if they can figure out how to help them live longer and be healthy through this, I think it's a great program," said Veterinarian Tracy Nyberg.

      For participating, they'll give you a $75 yearly reimbursement. For more information on signing up, check out the study's website.
