Did you know that according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs get cancer at the same rate as humans? It's so important to be on the lookout for signs and symptoms of cancer or illness in your pets. So how can you spot potential signs of cancer in your furry friends?
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.
