Bladder Cancers in Scotties (TCC)

Research has suggested that our beloved Scotties are 20 times more likely to get bladder cancer than other breeds. What has been noted is that the most common type befalling our Scotties is “Transitional Cell Carcinoma” of the bladder.

Symptoms associated with TCC is blood in the urine, straining to urinate and frequent urination. However, as usual, symptoms can also be associated with other infections, like “urinary tract infection”.

It is always advisable that if you notice any difference in your Scotties character, please get in touch with your Vet.
