Signs of Pet Cancer: Do You Know the Warning Symptoms?


Common Signs of Cancer In Pets:
  • Difficulty eating or swallowing
  • Abnormal swellings that persist or continue to grow
  • Sores that do not heal
  • Weight loss and/or loss of appetite
  • Pet just not acting like himself; behavior changes
  • Bleeding or discharge from any body opening
  • Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating
  • Persistent lameness or stiffness
  • Hesitance to exercise or loss of stamina

Many of the above signs are also seen in pets with noncancerous conditions. Regardless, these are signs your pet has some type of health condition and a visit to your veterinarian is warranted. Any new lump or growth on your pet should always be checked by the veterinarian. Don’t put off having even the smallest growth examined as many seemingly “benign” skin growths can be cancer. 60% of skin growths found on cats are cancerous.

Depending upon the timing of bringing your pet in, more or less will be able to be done to help the pet. Initially the veterinarian will recommend laboratory tests such as bloodwork, urine analysis and XRAYS. Most of the time, this will provide some preliminary insight to the veterinarian, but a biopsy is generally required in order to definitively diagnoses the presence of cancer and the type of cancer.
