Ten Early Signs that Your Shih Tzu May have Cancer

4. Coughing & Sneezing

Every dog will cough or sneeze on occasion, but rarely does it carry on for a considerable length of time. If your dog continues to cough or sneeze after a few days, schedule a visit with the vet, as it may be a sign of ancer or another serious ailment.

5. Unexplainable Vomiting or Diarrhea

Like humans, dogs may experence gastric upset from time to time. However, if your dog is dealing with a prolonged bout of illness with no discernible cause, you should take action. If this occurs for several days, has other symptoms, or leads to significant weight loss, your dog should be examined by a vet immediately.

6. Distention of the Abdomen

If your dog suddenly gets a round belly that is not attributed to weight gain, this could indicate a buildup of fluid. This is a sign of a health issue that requires a vet's examination.
