What Causes Tumors in Pets?

Certain breeds of dogs and cats may have a higher genetic predisposition to develop specific types of tumors. For example, some dog breeds are more prone to certain skin tumors, while others may be predisposed to certain bone tumors.

Several things can cause a pet to develop a tumor. If your pet is overweight, it is more susceptible to tumors. Additionally, a carb-heavy diet encourages the growth of tumors. Some studies show that psychological stress can also lead to tumors in pets. Our veterinarian will diagnose your pet if it has a tumor and tell you about the likely causes.
