Yes, we should be aware of cancer in our animals. It is not always easy to diagnose. My 13 year old beagle has two areas of cancer. Neither one was found with routine blood work. She has a mass near her spleen which was found during Xrays for bladder stones by her previous vet. She had no other symptoms. She also has cancer on her leg bone. She was limping on this leg. After two months of no help for this with her vet, we went to a different vet who xrayed the leg. I now give her medicine for her leg. Neither vet recommended surgery for the mass. It was a difficult time, but for now she is doing really well.

I always worry that my dog will get cancer some day. She has lots of the signs but I think it's just age.

i lost my dog to lymphoma cancer in 2005. He was only 5 years old. I miss him so much and think about him often. I hope one day there is a cure; it's not fair how great dogs are having to die in such a painful way

This article was very informative. Another thing that can cause cancer in pets is drinking unpurified tap water. So, I give my pets spring water.

Cancer awareness for pet owners is really important. Never new 1 in 4 could have it.
