The Big "C"

20% OFF lumps and bumps removal through the month of November!

Our feline friends may be less likely to develop cancer than their human companions or canines, but that doesn't make the disease any easier to treat. In fact, cancer in cats is often diagnosed later, as symptom can be hard to detect, which can lead to more difficult and costly treatments.

Although seeing the signs of cancer in cats can be tricky, here are some things to look for:

  • Lumps and bumps
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Refusing to eat and weight loss
  • A Rough coat

While cancer is much more likely to develop in a cat who has reached her golden years, even young cats can develop this condition. It's always best, if your cat is acting unusually or is lethargic for any length of time, to bring your cat to us to be checked out.

Being aware of possible signs of cancer, paired with regular wellness visits, can help you detect worrisome behaviors early so we can provide the best possible care.

If your cat has any of the symptoms listed above, schedule an appointment to see us TODAY.

A Lump or Bump or...

Discovering a lump on your pet can be scary. Your mind may immediately jump to the worst thing you can imagine: cancer.

The fact is, there are many causes of skin lumps and bumps in pets - such as cysts, allergic reactions, benign tumors and infections. Most are harmless, but a few can be serious.

The first thing to do is make an appointment with us to determine what the lump may be. This is especially important if your pet is lethargic or in pain, or if the lump is rapidly growing, warm, bleeding, irregular in shape, or attached to the tissues under the skin.

November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month, and we're offering a special incentive to have your pet's lumps and bumps examined: 15% OFF bumps and lumps exam through the month of November.
