Squamous Cell Carcinoma In Cats

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a cancer that can affect the skin and mouth of cats. SCC is very common as oral tumors in cats, but can also be found on the ear tips and nose. SCC in cats may look like a scab or a red, thickened area of skin so if you see something like that, be sure to point it out to your vet. The signs of oral SCC are foul mouth odors, difficulty eating and ulcerated lesions in the mouth. Oral tumors can spread to the jaw bones. Immune Harmony, Happy Paws Drops and the Immune Support Kit are products to consider if your cat has been diagnosed with SCC. These supplements can help support a healthy immune system.
