Rottweiler visit vet, sick rottweiler, rottweiler cancer1.What are some of the symptoms of cancer in dogs?
1.The signs of cancer in dogs are very similar to that in people. A lump or a bump, coughing and hard breathing, a wound that doesn’t heal, marked change on activity level, excessive thurst, any kind of swelling, enlarged lymph nodes, a lameness or swelling in the bone, abnormal bleeding, weight loss. 
Those are all classic signs. But sometimes there are little or no signs, at least early on. So any time an animal isn’t feeling well, or there’s something abnormal or not quite right, the owner needs to bring it to the attention of their veterinarian.
2.How common is cancer in dogs, and what are some of the common cancers found in dogs?
2.It has gotten to be pretty common, especially in older dogs. Fifty percent of dogs over the age of 10 develop cancer at some point. We see malignant lymphoma, which is a tumor of the lymph nodes. 
We see mast cell tumors, which is a form of skin cancer. There are mammary gland tumors, or breast cancer, and soft tissue sarcomas. We also see a fair amount of bone cancer in dogs.
