Do cats have different symptoms of cancer than dogs?
Erika Krick, VMD, DACVIM Veterinary Medical Oncologist, University of Pennsylvania, responds:
Cats sometimes act more ill compared to dogs, but overall the common signs of cancer are similar between the 2 species. Cats are more likely to have intestinal tumors, so they are more likely to have weight loss, vomiting, and poor appetite related to cancer.
