Throat cancer in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer in cats


Avatar f tn When we got Harley he was with a group of cats that were living in the woods. I was able to capture him and two others. All three of them had such bad teeth problems that after a time they had all their teeth pulled except for one cat, they left him four. The vet was unable to determine how old they were because of the poor teeth. I would think it would take maybe four years to have them get so bad, guessing, so that would make Harley 12 now.
Avatar f tn I have had a cough and wheeze in my throat for about 2 years now! I have seen GP's, Consultants, had chest xrays, bloods, ENT scopes down my nose, endoscopy, steroid inhalers, asthma inhalers, allergy medication yet NOTHING stops this horrible tickle in my throat which makes me cough! My wheeze is like there is something stuck in my throat! I take my ventolin blue inhaler and the wheeze goes for about a day then the next morning its back again!

Avatar n tn The good news is the prognosis for cats with Squamous cell carcinoma is much better than it is for other types of cancer. If the cancer is treated early enough, squamous cell carcinoma in cats is usually treatable. In most cats with skin Squamous cell carcinoma, the prognosis following surgery is excellent. It is promising that the affected area is small. It is a much better prognosis than for nose, ears or mouth!
Avatar n tn Most sites about cancer in cats (lymphoma) talk about life expectancies of around less than 2 years after remission. My cat is 4 and was diagnosed with lymphoma, is FeLV negative, and had no symptoms other than 1 tumor in a lymph node on the neck. Abdominal tumors weren't detected, there could be a hidden one in the head (nasal?), but without symptoms we didn't actually check.
Avatar f tn If kitty is 10 or older, she is at risk for cancer since oral and throat cancer are *potential* problems with gagging. Gagging can sometimes be a sign of a problem in the esophagus, too. I would suggest your vet examine the inside of your kittys mouth just to be on the safe side. She would need to be mildly sedated so the vet can examine the throat as well as all the teeth and gums. An xray of the throat is also suggested.

Symptoms began following a sore throat and respiratory infection in July. Workup uncluded a chest CT that showed single 3mm nodule with scarring at the apices. Due to have MRI of head and U/S of thyroid; seeing a pulmonologist next week Father (non smoker) died at 80 of lung cancer.
Avatar n tn ve tried diet changes, no luck. I have two cats and have had cats all of my life and my symptons are not at all affected by theire presence or dismissa. it gets worse if I get a cold, which is maybe once a year at most. I dont take vitamins, eat a lot of meat. But I do eat a lot of carbs. Could this be psycho ssametic or stress induced. My life style is filled with constant worry and stress with no relief insight. taking Yoga is not an optin in my day.
Avatar n tn Aside the fact that there are so many unwanted kittens around, spaying will go far in preventing breast cancer(very deadly in cats) in unaltered females.

Avatar n tn Pet Diet plays a major role in influencing the effectiveness, pet response and ultimate outcome of chemotherapy in dogs and cats diagnosed with cancer. Cancer cells alter your pets body’s ability to metabolize dietary nutrients, including carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The effect of cancer on dog and cat glucose or "blood" sugar metabolism is most dramatic in pets.
Avatar m tn If the electrolytes are way out of balance (which happens with extreme kidney failure) seizures result. Epilepsy is also possible in which medication can be used to control seizures. In terms of cancer if its the case, I would be concerned with brain or spinal cancer. Unlike stated above, cancer is NOT contagious, not even to other cats. There is a condition called Feline Leukemia which is confusing because humans have a cancer called Leukemia. However, Feline Leukemia is NOT a cancer.
Avatar n tn Diet is also very important. I have listed an anti-cancer diet routinely used at my practice and a list cancer supplements as follows: The diet: Eliminate all grains and starchy carbohydrate's from your cats diet. The homemade diet should include 75% meat, fish or poultry and 25% green leafy vegetables, and mushrooms. Place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook until the meat reaches 165 degrees F. I do not advocate raw meat in the case of GI cancers.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately I have had two cats that had cancer. You said the vet felt a large lump on Rosie. Where is the lump located ? So the vet said Rosie could have cancer and that it was quite advanced. Did the vet share with you what kind of cancer he or she thinks it is. So the vet recommended an x-ray and a blood test which you said you had done straight away. What did the x-ray reveal ? Is this your regular vet by the way or is this a new vet ?
Avatar f tn My boyfriend recently found a lump in the back of his throat. He is a smoker and has been smoking since he was I believe 15. He is 18 almost 19 now. I'm affraid he has cancer & can't think of what else it could be. It hasent gone away. Is there anything else besides cancer that it could be? Help please.
Avatar f tn FNA is not surgery - it is a biopsy of the mass to see whether you have cancer or not. It is only a test.
794335 tn?1238037723 However, I have had chemo twice in the past 2 years, and lost 2 cats so far, do I really need to worry about my cats and the chemotherapy? Plus my older cat also fights with my sons younger ones, constantly jumping them and biting them. Is this what may be giving my oldest cat behavior problems with the other 2 cats?
1152061 tn?1262040956 In the fall of '07 and '09 I had a mysterious sore throat for weeks. Those same autumns I would have a sneeze attack during a rainstorm. Just ONE particular rainstorm. My general practitioner thought the sore throats were from ragweed. It was always ragweed season when they occured, and batteries of tests for strep throat, yeasts and other things always came back negative.
Avatar f tn One is under my chin and the other is in my throat and quite painful. Any ideas what they are? I also have a pea sized lump in my cheek which has been there since I was a child. It has never bothered me and the Dr said it could be just a small stone. My mother had breast cancer a while ago and I am in the dodgy area but my grandfather also died from cancer of the throat and i am not just curious.
Avatar n tn I know how worried you must be. The kitten needs to see a vet ASAP, when a cat coughs and sneezes it never just goes away. How long ago was he on the antibiotic? Maybe, you could call the vet and tell them that you need something else. And, one more thing, was the antibiotic liquid or pill? If it was liquid antibiotic, and you used a syringe, you have to be very very careful and give kitty a tiny bit at a time, otherwise there's a chance they can choke.
Avatar n tn The problem with cats is that cats are very difficult to medicate with herbs, supplements, and holistic chemotherapy agents, since the products are not very palatable. Also, cats with cancer tend to have poor appetites, or are totally anorexia. Many of the supplements must utilized under the care of a veterinarian, however I will list all as follows: (Most are available online) www.polymva.
