Canine Cancer
Check your dog for these signs

One in four dogs will die of cancer.

That's according to the Morris Animal Foundation (MAF), which has sponsored the largest study of canine cancers in the U.S.

Based on the MAF study, which was financially supported by the American Kennel Club, and the American Veterinary Medical Association, the following are the signs
that may indicate cancer in our little dogs.

  • Unusual swelling that remains or grows
    Especially look at his lymph nodes behind the jaw and his belly
  • Sores that don't heal
  • Loss of weight
  • Unexplained bleeding (not due to accident or injury)
  • Bad breath or offensive odor
  • Trouble eating food or swallowing
  • Loss of interest in exercise or a loss of stamina
  • Lameness or stiffness
  • Straining to potty or having blood in urine
  • Labored breathing

No one of these symptoms by itself means your dog has cancer. There are other problems, some easily corrected by diet, that could be in play.

It does mean, however, that your dog needs to be examined by a veterinarian
as soon as possible.

Cancer today isn't a death sentence for dogs anymore than it is for humans. As in humans as well, early detection is the best (and less expensive) way to help your dog
survive this disease.

(Incidentally, note that it's the American Kennel Club that helps finance these
studies. I have never, ever heard of the HSUS or PETA contributing a dime to help finance any canine health study. Their money goes to lobbying, not canine care.)
