Warning Signs For Feline Cancer

Some cat owners worry their pets will show signs indicating they are not feeling well. Dogs show signs of illness in different ways, but differences in your cat’s appetite, weight loss and/or different reactions around the house are all causes for concern, especially for feline cancer.

If a cat has cancer, one of the first warning signs is diarrhea. Felines should have solid, well formed stool in their litter boxes. Gastrointestinal lymphosarcoma is a common cancer that is seen in feline patients. Often the first symptom of this cancer is diarrhea (palmbeachpost.com). If you see signs of diarrhea, take your cat to the Bregman Vet Group immediately and report the symptoms to your vet.

Another sign of illness in cats is loss of appetite. Most cats eat once or twice a day. If you notice variations in how much and how many times they eat a day, address it with your vet.
Cats can also get cancer in their mouths. If you notice a decreased appetite or if your cat is chewing on one side of their mouth, there could be something wrong. Veterinarian’s at the Bregman Vet Hospitals can answer any of your questions and address any concerns you may have about your pets getting sick.
As in humans, the sooner the problem gets diagnosed, the better. Keep an eye on your little furry loved ones and give us a call if anything is alarming to you.
