Pet Cancer is the #1 disease-related killer of pets. It can strike your pooch or little purry one at any age, although it’s more common in older pets. Certain breeds of dogs and cats have higher rates of cancer than others. So be sure to talk to your veterinarian about potential risk factors. And remember, early detection is the key to successful treatment and recovery.
Integrative veterinary oncology is a rapidly growing field, which means your irreplaceable pet has a much greater chance than ever of beating cancer. Given that total costs range from $5,000 to up to $20,000 or more, your finances could take a real beating if you don’t have Pet insurance.
Most pets do not experience hair loss, but they can lose their whiskers, which may or may not grow back. And it may take some time for hair that is shaved to grow back. But for most pets, massive hair loss just doesn’t occur. The exception to this is breeds of dogs who have synchronous hair follicle activity, like Poodles, Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, and Old English Sheepdogs, to name a few.
Chemotherapy gives your pet a chance to beat cancer, or at least send it into remission so they can get on with their regular lives – whether that means chasing a Frisbee or just lounging in the windowsill soaking up the sun. If your pet is facing a diagnosis of cancer, ask your veterinarian if chemotherapy can help.
