Dogs and cats can be just as vulnerable to cancer as humans. And as hard as it can be to receive such a diagnosis for your own pet, remission and a better quality of life are possible for them.

While cancer is the leading natural cause of death for older pets, it is also highly treatable, especially compared to conditions such as heart failure and kidney failure. Fetch proudly offers a veterinary oncology department of skilled specialists and support staff to diagnose and treat your pet’s cancer. With our knowledge, resources, and experience in managing various types of cancer in dogs and cats, our goal is to give your pet the best quality of life and best possible outcome following treatment.

Top 5 Cancers in Dogs

Cancer can affect dogs at any age, but older dogs tend to be more at risk. At Fetch, we know all too well how challenging it can be to accept a cancer diagnosis for your pet. That’s why we use the most advanced cancer diagnosing technology and treatment modalities to give your pet the best chance at a long, healthy, pain-free life.

Signs of cancer can vary from one dog to another, but we ask that you keep an eye out for these physical changes in your pet:

  • A strange lump or bump
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • A wound that won’t heal
  • Lameness
  • Abnormal bleeding
