Cancer in Dogs
Cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 10. Everyone knows that the quicker you find and diagnose cancer, the better chance you have at fighting if off and prolonging your dog’s life. Dogs are susceptible to the same types of cancers as humans, but they can metastasize at a much faster rate. If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, schedule an appointment with your vet.
Asthma and Respiratory Issues in Dogs
Asthma in dogs (as with humans) is essentially an allergic reaction to something in the environment. Exposure to the allergen triggers inflammation and uncontrolled mucus or fluid production that may block or narrow airways to make breathing difficult.
