Do you think your dog or cat have cancer because they have a tumor? Here is the tumor guide.

What animals get the most cancer?

Animals can get cancer just like a human being can get. Seventy percent of the animals that get cancer are dogs, and the other thirty percent is cats. Dr, Cynthia Maris who is a veterinarian who writes a newspaper column writes that she sees daily eight to twelve animals with cancer in her examining room. And none of the animals with tumors have benign tumors. And when pets die fifty percent of the deaths are from cancer. Here is her advice about tumors on your animals benign and cancerous.

Where the tumor is on the body

The first thing to do is look at the tumor. If it is on the body, have it biopsied and if it is cancerous have it removed. If the pet has a tumor near the around the rectum, or on the feet these tumors are usually a sign of a cancer that is quite aggressive. If the pet has a tumor in their eyelids or nasal passages, they have to be removed as the pet will have a hard time seeing and breathing. So they must be removed whether they are cancerous or not.

When to remove tumor?

Remove tumors that your pet has had for a long time and has been biopsied as not cancerous. If it grows suddenly, breaks open and blood comes out. Or else it looks full of blood and these symptoms never like that before that warrants to see the veterinarian as soon as possible.

If the pet gets a tumor under his leg and has a hard time walking. Even if it is biopsied as benign having it removed and your pet will walk and normally move again.
