If you’re like many people, your cat or dog is treated just like a family member. When they are under the weather or just not feeling well, you can usually tell when something is wrong. Noticing that your furry friend hasn’t been his old self lately is the first sign that there may be an underlying issue. Before you schedule an appointment with your pet’s veterinarian, take note of some of the physical signs of cancer and when the issue came to your attention.

Here are just a few things to look for:

Loss Of Appetite And Weight Loss

If you’re used to your dog begging for food or always barking for treats, when they suddenly turn food down, it’s a good indication that something underlying is going on. A loss of appetite is a good indicator of a medical issue and possibly cancer. Cancer cells attack the bloodstream and vital organs, which initially causes a loss of appetite and sudden weight loss. Types of cancer that commonly trigger a loss in appetite and weight include gastric cancers and plasma cell neoplasms. Utilizing Canna-Pet’s Cancer Resources can help you find answers to pet health concerns and healthy supplemental therapies that can help your furry friend thrive. Giving your dog a canine supplement treat or feeding him soft food may be the best way to care for him during his illness.
Excessive Sleeping And Coughing

Has your cat been sleeping a great deal more than usual? Have you noticed a strange cough or breathing difficulty even when at rest? It could be the signs of an underlying type of cancer. The feline leukemia virus is a serious virus that can often trigger some cases of lymphoma—one of the most common feline cancers. If your cat is sleeping more than usual and also has weight loss and swollen lymph nodes, he could have cancer.
