Here's What YOU Need to Know About Pet Cancer

By JennaDrady. | Dog Info

Pet Cancer Prevention and Health Issue DetectionNovember is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month.

That dreaded "C" word that no one - or no pet - ever wants to hear. But we cannot turn our backs on cancer, we cannot ignore it. What we can do, is raise awareness, and do our part to keep our pets healthy, while helping each other understand early signs of cancer, and/or how to prevent it.

Here's What YOU Need to Know About Canine Cancer:

According to The Veterinary Cancer Center - "Cancer accounts for nearly 50% of all disease related pet deaths each year."  Wow... That's huge. With only about 5% of canine cancers being hereditary, what that says to me, is that there are things we could be doing to help prevent such tragedies happening to our pets. But when cancer affects 1 out of every 3 dogs, what on earth can we do?

Early Detection Is Key

Pet Cancer Prevention and Dog Check-UpI cannot stress how important it is for us to check our pets regularly. Checking for lumps and bumps that shouldn't be there, can potentially help you realize that something isn't right with your pet. An easy way to do this is during a grooming session. Taking an extra few minutes to check their bodies, can give your pet a fighting chance, should you find something that shouldn't be there.

Some Other Warning Signs of Pet Cancer Can Be:

  1. Strange odors
  2. Heavy or sudden weight loss
  3. Coughing
  4. Chronic Vomiting
  5. Chronic diarrhea
  6. Sudden changes in appetite
  7. Lethargy
  8. Respiratory problems
  9. Sores that won't heal
  10. Pale gums
Keep in mind that while these can potentially be warning signs that your pet may have cancer, it does not necessarily mean your pet has cancer. So if you do notice any of these signs, or lumps and bumps on your pet, don't panic. Some of these things can simply mean your pet has some other sort of illness, or is not feeling well. The difference is knowledge. Knowing your pet, and having the ability to notice changes in them can make the world of difference. If you notice any of the above signs in your pet, whether or not it could be serious, it is always best to make a visit to your Veterinarian. Six million pets will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone... so lets do our part to raise awareness, and help others understand what the early warning signs of pet cancer can be.

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Perfect seat cover- just what I was looking for

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.

Geeat fit, great product, great service

Got these much faster than other products I have ordered online. The fit is wonderful, even in my little Corolla, and the installation was really easy. Hair does NOT stick to these covers.I love them!


Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
