8 Warning Signs Your Dog Has Cancer Should Never Ignore It.

8. PALE GUMS

Be sure to occasionally check the color of your dog’s gums. Pale gums can be a sign of many health issues with dogs, cancer included. If you notice a change in this area, contact your veterinarian right away.

Here’s how to check your dog’s gums:

  • lift the jowl so you can get a good look
  • press the gums with the ball of your finger
  • observe the gum’s color where you’ve pressed

In healthy dogs, after pressing on their gums the area should turn white briefly. After about 2 to 3 seconds, the color should return to its normal pink. If not, pay attention for other warning signs and consider talking to your vet.
