AMTM vs Tumours in dogs

According to PET MD, tumours occur when a cell continues to multiply uncontrollably instead of following the natural cycle that ends in cell death. 

Benign tumours lack the ability to spread or invade other healthy tissue. Although they may need medical attention, these are not cancerous.

Malignant tumours, or cancers, spread to other organs and tissues in a process called metastasis. Depending on the type of tumour and how aggressive it is, cancers can pose serious health risks for a dog. 

The warning signs of cancer in dogs are very similar to that in people. A lump or a bump, a wound that doesn’t heal, any kind of swelling, enlarged lymph nodes, a lameness or swelling in the bone, abnormal bleeding. Other signs include abnormal odours emanating from the mouth, ears, or any other part of the body or abnormal discharge from the eyes, mouth, ears, or rectum. 

In its 11 years’ service to the animal community, AMTM has treated and cured several tumour cases in dogs. We never give up on any case that comes our way and strive day and night to save the life of the ailing animal. 

One such case was Shuri. Shuri was a 7-year-old Indian female dog. She was rescued on September 1, 2021, with a hernia and humongous tumour on her stomach that needed urgent surgery. We operated on the hernia and successfully removed the tumour. Shuri was under our care for more than 3 months. She was finally released on November 1, 2021. 

Another heartbreaking  case is that of Melissa. Melissa is suffering from a tumour in her mouth. It’s a slow death if not treated in time. Help us save her life by donating for her treatment. 

Tumour, both benign and cancerous, have become pretty common, especially in older dogs. Fifty percent of dogs over the age of 10 develop cancer at some point. If you come across any dogs in your area suffering from a tumour please contact us. We hope to be of help to you and the dog.
