One in four dogs will develop cancer during their lifetimes. While cancer is less common in cats, it tends to be harder to detect in our feline friends. Early detection is the key to better prognoses, so routine veterinary exams and screenings are crucial. Your young and adult pets should see their veterinarians every year, and your senior pets should see their veterinarians twice each year. But if your pet’s eating, sleeping or bathroom habits change suddenly, schedule an appointment as soon as you can.
This month is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month, and for every photo you tag with #CurePetCancer on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Nationwide will donate $5 to the Animal Cancer Foundation. Learn more about the initiative and help us join the fight to #CurePetCancer.
