What are the common symptoms of cancer in Dogs?
Where can I get the right diagnosis of cancer, and what are the best treatment options?

In short....... Ask your Vet.

Yes, dogs can develop cancer. Symptoms vary, depending on the type of cancer. Taking your dog to the vet is the first step in determining a cancer diagnosis and treatment options. .

Yes dogs can get cancer. There are several different types of cancer they can get.
The only person who can tell you that your dog does have cancer is your vet.
Your vet is also the person who can help you develop a treatment plan if your dog does get cancer.

We had a dog diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma 9 years ago. The tumors were successfully removed, 4 years later, he was diagnosed with Lymphoma and we lost his a few months later (5 years ago this last Monday, Presidents day) He was only 8 years old.

I have learned a lot more about treatment since then and wish I knew then what I know now.
Cancer sucks.

Sorry to hear about your loss! I can understand how hard it would have been for you to cope up with the death of your loved doggo. I'm also worried about my dog as he has lost his appetite recently and behaving differently as usual.

I wouldn't leap to the conclusion the dog has cancer just because the appetite is off.

This symptom can be associated with many other problems that are more probable than cancer. For instance...the dog may have an obstruction in the digestive track. Many dogs will discover snacks on walks or romping around. Sometimes these sidewalk goodies are not very good treasures.

Still go see the Vet. But don't hit the cancer button until you have confirmation from the Vet.

I agree with you, but the thing is that I take him for a walk every day and I've never seen him eating anything. But still, I'll visit the vet to make sure about the symptoms.
