NOVEMBER IS PET CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!
In honor of Pet Cancer Awareness Month, all fine-needle aspirates, mass removal surgeries, and histopathology will be 10% off!
Did you know that cancer accounts for nearly 50% of all disease-related pet deaths each year? Or that cancer is the #1 natural cause of death in older pets? One in four dogs die of cancer, and one in four dogs will develop a tumor of some kind during his or her lifetime. Think your cat is immune? Though cancer is much more common in dogs, cancer in cats tends to be much more aggressive and malignant.
If your pet has a tumor/growth or unusual bump, your veterinarian will want to perform diagnostics to determine its origin and behavior. The origin or cause is critical in developing a plan for your pet, such as surgical removal, chemotherapy, or referral to a veterinary oncologist (cancer specialist).
Signs that your pet may have cancer include the following: abnormal masses, persistent sores/wounds, lethargy, weakness, persistent lameness/stiffness, change in breathing or eating, weight loss, poor coat quality, and more.
