Noting The Symptoms of Animal Cancer

Though annual check-ups of your pets are very important, many times these prove to be very late especially if your pet is found to be suffering from cancer. This is because the Dog Cancer is similar to the cancer in humans. But the cancer in canines metastasizesmuch faster than in humans. Hence it is very important that you are aware of the various symptoms that can indicate that something is wrong with your pet.


Some of the most commonly seen symptoms of cancer in canines include:


•    Any odd shape swelling or a lump on your dog’s body that is seen for more than few days. You should immediately consult your dog’s vet and get it checked. You should also get a biopsy done if required.
•    Your dog is experiencing sudden and unexplained weight loss. This loss is despite the fact that you are giving healthy diet to it. Then your dog needs to undergo proper examination to rule out Animal Cancer.
•    Another point of alarm would be when your dog’s eating habits change suddenly. It refuses to eat its food or is not eating properly.  
•    Your dog has unexplained vomiting or diarrhea not getting better with normal treatment.
•    You notice bleeding gums or unusual growth in gums of your pet. It has extremely bad breath or there are odd odors from it.
•    You notice stiffness in the limbs for prolonged time. You should never mistake it for muscle pull or arthritis. If your pet is unable to freely move its limbs, then you should consult your pet’s vet immediately.
•     There is change in gait and your dog is favoring one of its limbs. It is also experiencing pain while using the limb.
•    One of the other sign of Dog Cancer is difficulty in defecating or urinating. Your pet may be having excessive urination, bloody urine or difficulty in urination. You may also notice change in urinary habits such as incontinence or urinating all the time. It may be straining to poop or the poop may not be normal looking.
•    Your pet may have become lethargic, been sleeping all the time or may be showing lack of interest in its surroundings. It also does not to play with you now.


If you notice any of the above stated symptoms or any other warning signs in your pet, then you should not delay in consulting the vet. To confirm the suspicion of Animal Cancer, he/she will perform various types of tests such as x-rays and blood tests.


Once the diagnosis of cancer is confirmed, your vet will refer you to the cancer specialist vet. The oncology veterinarian will reconfirm the diagnosis and also confirm the stage of cancer and how much metastasis has occurred.


Before you make the final decision of a particular type of treatment for your pet’s Dog Cancer, you should keep in mind your pet’s quality of life and age. For more information visit here: CVS Angel Care Cancer Center
