10 Symptoms of Cancer Every Pet Owner Should Know
Keeping an eye on what's important
10 Symptoms of Cancer Every Pet Owner Should Know
Its 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, dont 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
Appetite 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.
Changes 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
Difficulty walking
Limping or refusing to use some limbs could
potentially indicate a bone tumor.
Foul body odor or breath
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 cats body that wasnt there
previously could indicate a tumor. Persistent
cough or struggling to breathe  A pet who coughs
without 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 youre not actively trying to reduce your
pets 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 its cancer, you could also notice that
he has a distended or bloated stomach caused by
internal discharge.
