Ten Signs of Canine Cancer 
photo#1 - UNUSUAL ORDORS
While "dog breath" is common, if you notice foul odors coming from the mouth, nose or rectal area, it may be due to a tumor.
#2 - BUMPS OR LUMPS ON or UNDER THE SKIN
Get into the habit of checking your pet's skin monthly. Don't forget to check behind ears and around the face. Even if you find a very tiny lump or bump, cancer can grow very quickly. Any new lumps or bumps should not be ignored. If the bumps are bleeding or theres discharge, see a veterinarian immediately.
#3 - UNUSUAL WEIGHT LOSS
Unless you've put your pet on a diet, their weight should remain pretty consistent. Sudden weight loss is a cause for concern.
#4 - APPETITE CHANGES
If your dog has lost interest in meal times, illness is likely the cause. Many health conditions cause appetite loss, and cancer is one of them.
#5 - LETHARGY
Learn to tell the difference between a lazy dog and a lethargic one. You know your dog's personality the best. If he doesn't seem like himself and is spending more and more time sleeping, talk to your veterinarian.
#6 - RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS
Dogs can get lung cancer, and some indicators could be coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath after very little exercise.
#7 - BEHAVIOR CHANGES
Has your normally mellow dog been snapping? Is she spending more time away from you? She could be in pain. Also pay attention to how she is walking, eating and playing. If you notice any limping or struggling - it's time to see a vet.
#8 - OPEN SORES
If your dog has an open sore or other wounds that aren't healing properly, it could be because of a larger medical issue. Time to seek a professional option.
#9 - VOMITING AND DIARRHEA
If you notice that your dog is vomiting frequently, and/or has diarrhea, you should see your veterinarian, especially if it's accompanied by any of these other symptoms. Also check your dog's abdomen for bloating and distension (stomach swelling).
#10 - PALE GUMS
Know what a healthy dog's mouth looks like so you can tell when your canine's isn't. Very pale gums could mean blood loss, and cancer is one of many illnesses associated with this symptom.

Dr. Kelly Ryan, DVM at the Animal Medical Center of Mid-American and Humane Society of Missouri.
