Cancer is considered as one of the most dangerous diseases in the world which claims more than 100,000 lives every year. Thankfully nowadays, people are more aware about their health and are doing practically everything that is possible for preventing cancer.

Dogs' lives are too short; their only fault, really

But what about our four-pawed family members? Yes, we are talking about your pets. For a fact, your pets are equally at risk of developing cancer as you are. And still we know nothing about cancer in pets.

In order to make sure that you take proper care of your pet, here is everything to know about cancer in pets:

As per the statistics by Indian Veterinary Research Institute, the number of cases of cancer in dogs has been increased to 209 in a year. Dogs are prone to cancer and the common types of cancer found in dogs is Mast Cancers, Lipoma, Osteosarcoma, Oral melanoma, mammary gland carcinoma, Primary lung tumour and thyroid carcinoma.

Dogs are similar to that of humans in many ways, especially physically. Cancer treats both dogs and humans equally; even the symptoms of cancer in dogs are very similar to that of cancer in humans. Like humans, dogs also develop lumps, bumps, wounds that do not heal easily.

According to veterinary oncologist and former president of the Veterinary Cancer Society (US), Dave Ruslander, Golden Retrievers, Boxers and Bernese Mountain Dogs show a strong inclination towards cancer, indicating a genetic link.

The best way to prevent your dog from developing cancer is to stay alert and consistent for your dog's health check-ups. It is very important to correctly identify the cause and type of cancer in a dog.

So, always keep in mind that your dog is equally at risk of developing cancer as you are. Stay tuned for more pet related updates. Follow our Bollywood Magazine For Latest Bollywood News and Gossips.
