10 Symptoms of Cancer Every Pet Owner Should Know - Chaska Valley Veterinary Clinic. - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

It’s a sad reality that our pets are not immune from the same serious diseases that strike humans. This includes cancer. Many pet owners feel shocked by the diagnosis because they barely noticed any symptoms. If you find yourself in that situation, don’t feel guilty about it. Dogs and cats have an instinctual need to hide their pain. In honor of Pet Cancer Awareness Month, Chaska Valley Veterinary Clinic urges all pet owners to familiarize themselves with the 10 most common symptoms of animal cancer. They include:\n\nAppetite changes: An oral tumor or one in the esophagus, lungs, or stomach can make chewing and swallowing challenging for your pet. This appears as a reduced appetite, even among pets who previously ate anything in front of them in record time.\n\nChanges in bathroom habits: Your pet may urinate or defecate more or less often than she normally does. You could also notice diarrhea, constipation, or blood in the feces.

Pets often have bad breath due to poor oral hygiene. However, cancer

cells growing along the lining of the mouth or nose can cause especially

bad breath. Anal tumors can produce excessive odor as well.

New lumps or bumps: A hard mass on your dog or cat’s body that wasn’t

there previously could indicate a tumor.

Persistent cough or struggling to breathe:

experiencing relief could have a tumor in the lung. Some dogs and cats

will not be able to catch their breath and end up gasping for air.

Slow-healing wounds

If you notice a new wound or that a cut

heals very slowly or not at all, please

contact our animal hospital to schedule an

evaluation for your pet.

Unplanned weight loss

If you’re not actively trying to reduce your

pet’s weight, any noticeable weight loss is a

red flag that something could be wrong.

Unusual discharge

Pus, heavy bleeding, diarrhea, and vomiting

can all indicate a serious health issue with

your pet. If it’s cancer, you could also notice

that he has a distended or bloated stomach

caused by internal discharge.
