Early Detection is Key, but More Difficult

Jul 26, 2018

As is true for our own health an "ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is also true for our pets. But because they can't talk, we need to rely more on physical clues to detect cancer in the earliest stages in our dogs and cats. Cats in particular are very adept at hiding their illness, so cat “parents” must be vigilant and sensitive to their cat’s particular behaviors and actions. To help cat “parents” monitor their pets we have created a feline version of the most common warning signs. Please understand that these are just potential warning signs and should not panic you, but prompt a visit to your veterinarian.
