Dog Skin Cancer Symptoms and Treatment

Dog Skin CancerDog skin cancer is fairly common and can be a scary prospect, but it doesn’t have to mean it’s all over for your furry friend. Dogs naturally develop tumors more easily than cats – up to six times – but their tumors are more likely to be benign. If you know the signs of canine skin cancer then you can easily detect any irregularities in your dog’s skin with thorough inspections. It is not known exactly what causes skin cancer in dogs, but exposure to the sun appears to be a link, and certain breeds, as well as dogs with light and/or thin coats, statistically develop dog skin cancer more often than others.
