Today is National Animal Hospice Day 2016!

Today is National Animal Hospice Day!

In addition, the entire month of November is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month!  Be sure to check your pet for any of these symptoms.  I advocate that you do a check of your pet at least 1-2 times per month.  The most important thing is to get a baseline and continue to monitor for any changes.  Possible signs to watch for include:

  • Unusual fatigue and/or weakness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Discoloration in urine or stools
  • Bad breath
  • Lumps, bumps, masses
  • Excessive, unusual coughing or sneezing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pain
  • Changes in quality of skin or coat
  • Blindness
  • Seizures

Please take some time in November to do a quick check of your pet.  Prevention and early detection are critical when it comes to cancer.
