10 Cancer Warning Signs in Pets

Posted by on

10 cancer warning signs in your pet

  1.  Lumps and bumps.  Not every lump is cancerous, but the only way to be sure is to consult a veterinarian.  If it grows or does not resolve on its own, a veterinarian can perform a biopsy to determine if it is malignant or benign.
  2. Abnormal odors.  Unusually foul odors from orifices or body parts might be a cause for concern.  Certain cancers can product nose-crinkling smells.
  3. Abnormal discharges.  Blood, pus, vomit, diarrhea or any other abnormal discharge should be checked out by a vet.  A bloated or distended stomach also could be a sign of internal discharge.
  4. Wounds that do not heal.  Any wound that doesn’t heal within a normal timeframe may indicate infection, skin disease or cancer.
  5. Weight loss.  Sudden weight loss in pets can indicate trouble.
  6. Change in appetite.  Pets may stop eating for a variety of reasons, but there is always a reason!  A decrease in appetite can mean an oral tumor, which would make eating and swallowing painful.
  7. Coughing or difficulty breathing.  These often are symptoms of heart and lung disease but also can point to cancer that has metastasized into a pet’s lung.
  8. Lethargy and depression.  Many pets with cancer develop depression, sleep more and become less active.
  9. Changes in bathroom habits.  Difficulty urinating or evacuating, frequent bathroom use and blood in urine or excrement are all warnings signs of internal distress.
  10. Evidence of pain.  Limping or other evidence of pain during activity can be indication of bone cancer.

Many of these signs could be indications of a variety of conditions.  However, a pet showing two or more of these signs should be taken to a veterinarian immediately for a diagnosis.
