Cancer is considered the most devastating disease of our time. Unfortunately, it doesn’t only affect humans. Our pets are just as likely to suffer from cancer as we are. In fact, cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs, with an estimated 1 in 3 domestic canines developing cancer during their lifetime, which are very similar statistics to human incidences of cancer. Felines are less likely to develop cancer than dogs, but the condition can affect any animal. The most common types of cancer in animals include skin, breast, testicular, bone, head and neck, lymphoma and abdominal. The prognosis for the treatment and recovery of your pet will very much depend on how quickly cancer has been identified and its location.
