Spotting Potential Signs Of Cancer in Dogs and Cats

Dogs get cancer at roughly the same rate as humans, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. So how can you spot potential signs of cancer in your pets? Pay attention to changes in the way your pet eats and moves, advises Dr. Nick Szigetvari, who is certified in veterinary oncology. In cats, look for minor changes in appetite and grooming, since they may hide their symptoms. In dogs, check for any lumps, swelling, limping or wounds that take longer than a week to heal.

  • My best friend Kuma is typically a chill dog but I knew she was showing signs of old age as she reached 9 years old (she's a husky-malamute-shepard mix rescue dog and I don't know exactly how old she is in human years). Just before her adoption anniversary she showed lumps in her body that reveal to be cancer tumors. So far the vet predicts that she has 3 to 18 months left because the cancer is so aggressive. I hope she survives cancer and lives long enough to see me graduate - we've been friends since I started college.

I asked if he could see a vet and my dad refused. It was too late when he was taken to the vet. After his visit at the vet he died.

  • I sooooo agree. I had a dog (cocker spaniel) who developed cancer she had a tumor on her gums on the right side of her mouth started going down her throat. She just chewed on the other side of her mouth. She still had her pseudo puppy like disposition even though she was 9 years old. I came home one day and she was gone. My mom took her to get her put down. She thought she would suffer. My mom said it was one of the worst thing she could do. She said she cried all the way back home.
