A cancer diagnosis in the veterinary world brings more distress to a pet owner than medical conditions such as kidney and heart disease, which can be more difficult to treat and have a poorer chance of survival than some types of cancer. However, a cancer diagnosis of a beloved pet results in serious concerns by family members. And while a cancer diagnosis is always difficult to hear, there is hope for treatment and possibly even a cure. The most important step is to get an early diagnosis and begin treatment. Semiannual visits to your veterinarian for a thorough exam are essential to finding cancer early.
