The dreaded diagnosis. It might be more traumatic to learn of your dog diagnosed with cancer than yourself. The reason? We anthropomorphise our animals and they are a part of our family, our routines and lives. What can you do to prevent and recognise the symptoms or warning signs of cancer? Here’s a list. As always, you know your animal best, as does your veterinarian. These guidelines and information are meant to aid – not to be used to self diagnose and treat. Dr. Master has some insights.
