18-Year-Old Jaguar at Akron Zoo Diagnosed with Breast Cancer

Zoo officials at the Akron Zoo in Cleveland, Ohio, recently announced that one of their jaguars has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will likely not be able to be treated due to her advanced age.Naom is the older of two female jaguars that the zoo has. She is 18 years old, which is the average life expectancy of a jaguar in captivity.Photo: Facebook/Akron ZooRecently, zookeepers noticed a lump on Naom’s abdomen that was growing quickly— it was almost noticeably bigger on a daily basis. So they scheduled her for a checkup and learned that she had an aggressive cancerous tumor that was spreading quickly to other areas of her body.

Veterinarians have declared the tumor inoperable due to its fast growth, so Naom will be allowed to live out the rest of her life in as much comfort as zookeepers can offer her.Despite the fact that Naom’s caretakers are unable to cure her cancer, however, they will surely miss her and do their best to keep her happy for her remaining days. This little old lady has got a lot of spunk and is well-known around the zoo for her sass and intelligence.

We’re doing everything medically possible for her,” the post read. “Because we realized almost everyone’s lives have been impacted by cancer, we wanted to share her story and walk through this process together.”Breast cancer is seen in wild cats more often than domestic cats, likely because wild cats are not regularly spayed like domestic cats are for population control. However, experts don’t have a lot of data on breast cancer in wild cats because of how difficult it is to conduct testing on wild cats. However, over 85% of mammary tumors in domestic cats are cancerous and aggressive.Check out the video below to learn more about this amazing cat and her current treatment plan.Proper BCS greatergood_ctg_abovevideoSource
