Cancer awereness week in the USA and the couple of years when Taylor and I raised thousands of dollars for the NZ Cancer Society, brings to mind that cancer in dogs is the fourth most common type of claim received by pet insurance companies.
The key to successful treatments is early diagnosis.
Here are the signs of cancer in dogs;
Abnormal swellings that persist or continue to grow.
Sores that do not heal.
Loss of appetite.
Bleeding or discharge from body openings.
Difficulty eating or swallowing.
Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina.
Persistent lameness or stiffness.
Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating.
A Corgi with cancer can show just one of these signs or a few of them. A Corgi with one or even more than one of these signs may not necessarily have cancer - it could be another health issue.
