Dogs are prone to cancer and the common types of cancer found in dogs is Mast Cancers, Lipoma, Osteosarcoma, Oral melanoma, mammary gland carcinoma, Primary lung tumour and thyroid carcinoma.
Dogs are similar to that of humans in many ways, especially physically. Cancer treats both dogs and humans equally; even the symptoms of cancer in dogs are very similar to that of cancer in humans. Like humans, dogs also develop lumps, bumps, wounds that do not heal easily.
