Ten Pet Cancer Early Warning Signs

  1. Abnormal swellings that persist or continue to grow
  2. Sores that do not heal
  3. Weight loss
  4. Loss of appetite
  5. Bleeding or discharge from any body opening
  6. Offensive odor
  7. Difficulty eating or swallowing
  8. Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina
  9. Persistent lameness or stiffness
  10. Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating

Other diseases can mimic the signs of cancer, so it’s important to have a veterinarian examine your pet. He will help you determine which steps you should take to uncover the cause of the pet’s illness. In some cases, a referral to a specialist, such as a veterinary oncologist, may be necessary.

These tips and more information are included in VPI‘s pamphlet “Pet Cancer Awareness,” available at our office. Or Contact Us and we’ll mail a pamphlet to you.

No pups available.

Update: Mini Paws (the curly pup on the right) has been sold.

For Sale: 2 male Yorkie-Poodle pups.

     Adorable 9-week-old pups have been seen by their veterinarian for a check-up, worming, and first vaccination.

     The pups’ “grandparents” described them for me:  “Yorkie-poos do not shed and are hypoallergenic. They are smart (easily trained), affectionate, loyal and just all-around fun.”

     Asking price is $500 per pup. Please call 583-2619 for more information; serious inquiries only.

     In the photo above, “Thomas” is on the left and “Mini Paws” is on the right.

Note: these puppies belong to a private owner; all sales terms and conditions are strictly between the buyer and seller. Little Creek Veterinary Clinic has not examined these puppies and makes no warranty or guarantee of their health or condition. Caveat emptor.
