Spotting Potential Signs Of Cancer in Dogs and Cats

  • Published on Dec 1, 2019
  • 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.

    I remember before my cat died I knew that he wasn’t looking so good. He started throwing up constantly and his fur became rough and his nose and paws were lighter than before. 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 have a lot of respect for vets, but this reminded me of an appointment years ago. The vet clapped behind my dog's back, and when she lazily looked behind her at him, he declared her deaf. Only that Missy was such a chill dog, she could hear him, she just didn't care. 😂

    My cat died of cancer, which was discovered shortly after he was diagnosed with diabetes. When pets start to deteriorate, it goes fast. I watched him lose weight to one day not being able to walk. I miss you Tiger, but 12 & 1/2 healthy, happy years was more than I could ask for

      Next time you can cure your dog and cats with Fenbendazole (dogs dewormer) I saved my dog from cancer(Hemangiosarcoma) when oncologist gave up ! Panacur c (fenbendazole) has very very anti cancerous tumors either human or animals. Please check Joe Tiffens story in google. You will be shocked! I was shocked shocked still shocked by Fenbendazole saved my dog ! Amazing medicine !

    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.
