10 signs of cancer in cats

Cancer is an ever-increasing problem for our pets, so it's no surprise that we're always looking for something abnormal.
Annual veterinary examinations can help your little cat stay happy and healthy, but cats are very stoic animals that rarely show any symptoms of the disease until it is too late.
To be proactive in the health of our little cat, it is important to take note of any of these symptoms and check with your veterinarian to rule out any problems.

1 - Weight loss

While some cats might lose a few pounds, noticing an unwarranted and sudden weight loss is usually a sign that something is wrong.
Because cancer cells take up a lot of energy and nutrition from our cats, it is very common for them to start losing weight quickly and without obvious explanation.

2 - Lethargy

Cats sleep a lot, but when they are awake, they stay quite active and enjoy their playing time.
If you notice that your little cat is sleeping more than normal or shows no interest in play and activity, chances are he is not feeling very well.

3 - Pieces

Lumps are probably the most obvious sign of cancer in cats, as they are often easily visible and felt.
Lumps are not always dangerous, but it is important to take your little cat to the vet if you find any.
They can appear anywhere on the body and grow very slowly or very quickly.

4 - Bad breath

Your cat's breath probably doesn't smell particularly good at first, but foul-smelling breath with an abnormal smell can be a sign of cancer and other ailments. I hope your little cat will just need a dental to cleanse, but if you notice bad breath, it is important to take your little cat to the vet.

5 - Sudden Box

Tumors can often be painful, especially if they are found in bone tissue. Sudden lameness in cats is certainly a sign that something is wrong and that it is better to rule out the cause as soon as possible. Not only do our cats experience pain and discomfort, but bone cancers can spread quickly and it is best to control them. Sometimes even an amputation is the best answer. But don't worry, cats can move on only three legs very well.

6 - Wounds and wounds that do not heal

If your little cat is fighting something like cancer, it's going to take all the time her immune system has to offer.
As a result, it is not uncommon for cats to develop sores or have small wounds that never seem to heal.
Even tiny scratches can ignite and become infected when they normally disappear within a few days. If you notice this is happening to your little cat, take him to the vet immediately.

7 - Difficulty breathing

Tumors often develop indoors or grow against the lungs and throat of our cats, making breathing very difficult.
If you notice wheezing or panting, be sure to take your little cat to the vet as soon as possible.
If left untreated, tumors in the chest cavity or throat can suffocate cats very quickly.

8 - Loss of appetite

If you notice that your little cat is not eating as much or has completely stopped eating, it is imperative to consult a veterinarian immediately.
Whatever the cause of its inappetence, cats may suffer from a dangerous side effect, called foie gras, of not eating for a day or two.
Fatty liver, or liver lipidosis, is very common in cats that stop eating suddenly and can be just as deadly as cancer that can cause your little cat to avoid food.

9 - Abnormal swelling

Some tumors may not be seen or felt right under the skin, but you may notice that your cat's chest or abdomen has enlarged or distended.
This could mean that something dangerous is developing inside and is a sure sign that your little cat needs veterinary care.

10 - Vomiting and Diarrhea

Vomiting and diarrhea are relatively common in cats and can be caused by just about anything, but persistent symptoms are a sign that something is wrong.
If you notice excessive vomiting and/or diarrhea that lasts a long time or gradually worsens, cancer could certainly cause the culprit back and your little cat should consult a veterinarian sooner rather than later.
