Just like their human friends, dogs get cancer as well. According to US statistics, one out of three dogs suffers from cancer, with perianal gland tumors being the most common. Vets say pet owners should have their dogs regularly checked.

Pets need regular health checks to be as lively as this group of dogs.

==PET OWNER==
pay attention to the temperature at home put on a fan or air conditioning. When dogs are in pain, if you touch the spot they will yelp and then you know something is wrong.

==PET OWNER==
You need to brush them, get rid of their old fur and send them regularly for a shampoo.

Pet owners need to monitor the weather, and give pets regular health checks and beauty treatments. Vets remind owners that pets, like people, can get tumors. In dogs, the peri anal gland tumor is very common. Dogs over 10 years old have a fifty percent chance of developing cancer.

You can see if it is swollen here and if it hurts and is infected.

Pet owners can look under their dog's tails and then take them to the vet for a proper check up. Vets recommend to seek help as soon as a pet is ill so that it can have appropriate treatment and regain its health.

民眾如果有飼養寵物的話,要特別注意,因為毛小孩就和人類一樣,也會有腫瘤等健康問題。根據美國、國家癌症犬基金會的統計數據,平均每三隻狗,就會有一隻,出現腫瘤方面問題,其中是以圍肛腺瘤最常見。獸醫師表示,民眾可以把狗尾巴翻起來、按壓肛門周圍來檢查。

數十隻狗狗一起亮相,立刻成為現場焦點,調皮可愛的姿態,看了好療癒。但要維持寵物,一直在這麼活潑、健康的狀態,飼主平常可得用心呵護。

==民眾==
家裡的溫度就稍微要注意一下
可能電風扇 工業扇還有冷氣
我發現狗就是 有些地方
牠有痛 你只要摸過去
牠就會叫的話 那表示可能怪怪的

==民眾==
就是要常梳毛 常梳廢毛
把牠們廢毛梳掉 這樣子
然後要送洗 定期送洗

除了要注意氣候變化、定期健檢和美容之外,有獸醫師提醒,寵物和人類一樣,有「腫瘤」方面的健康問題,其中又以「圍肛腺瘤」最常見,而且10歲以上的高齡犬,還有50%的罹癌風險。

==中華民國獸醫師公會全國聯合會理事長 陳培中==
就在肛門的兩側 兩側有沒有腫起
(是否)發紅 又腫了
然後有痛的感覺 然後有發熱

翻開狗狗尾巴、用手按壓肛門周圍,就可以初步觀察健康狀況,有沒有出問題。如果發現異常,獸醫師建議要盡快就醫,並給予適合的藥物,才能確保狗狗健康。
