How to spot cancer in your dog or cat
- Cancer is the No. 1 disease-related killer of dogs and cats, and one in three dogs will develop it, according to the National Canine Cancer Foundation. It occurs in both purebreds and mixed breeds, but some cats and dogs are more susceptible to cancer than others. Both older cats and dogs are more likely to develop the disease than younger ones, and breeds like boxers, German shepherds, Great Danes and Boston terriers are more prone to certain types of cancer.
