Cancer is commonly diagnosed in older pets, although some cancers can affect pets of any age. There are many different types of cancer and symptoms can vary dramatically depending on which part of the body the cancer affects.
We are here to help ensure your pet stays as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Annual physical exams along with routine blood work and radiographs (x-rays) are some ways that help detect cancer early.
Some cancer and cancerous tumors respond to chemotherapy, others require surgical removal. Ask your veterinarian if your pet shows any symptoms of cancer.
