Science has come a long way in both helping us prevent and treat cancer in dogs. While regular exercise and even healthy supplements as well as natural foods can help prevent cancer in your dog, so can a positive home environment. Dogs are sensitive creatures both emotional and physically, they can even be affected by cleaning your floors with bleach or feeding them unhealthy table scraps. It’s important to know the signs that indicate your dog may have cancer so you can take them to get treatment before it spreads and gets worse. Monitoring your dogs behavior can add years to their life as they can’t really communicate when they aren’t feeling well and they rely entirely on you for their health.
If you notice your dog is looking abnormally thin, this could be a sign that they have cancer. If they seem weak, their eyes are moving slowly and they are just getting up much slower because they seem frail, you should seek medical attention for them right away. Any unexplained weight loss should not be ignored. Having a regular check-up can help you monitor your dog’s weight and then you will know if they are losing weight.
