Daily Doggie Tip #36

We all like to think that our beloved furbabies will stay fit and healthy for the duration of their natural lives. Sadly this isn’t always the case, and the incidence of canine cancer is on the rise. Although there is very little that we can do to prevent this, we can keep a good check on our dogs so that we notice any changes. Whilst grooming your dog, keep a good eye for lumps and bumps, and if you are worried about anything take a trip to the vet. As with us, many cancers are much more treatable when caught in the early stages:

  1. We lost our GSD to cancer last year, it felt as a part of us went with him. He had a sarcoma and there were no lumps or anything on the surface to indicate something was wrong until it was too late and we had to put him to sleep so he doesn’t suffer. The only indication looking back is that he slowed down a bit for the last year of his life which we put down to his age (he was 8) and we assumed he was strating to suffer with a bit of arthritis typical for this breed . Now I wonder if wcould have done something different?
