Studies have shown that just over every fourth animal dies as a result of a tumor. Therefore, it is important to recognize this early. Only then there are chances of recovery.
If a lump or perennial proliferation of any kind is detected on the animal, we can diagnose it with the help of a FNA (Fine Needle Biopsy) and subsequent cytological examination.
This provides information about the type and malignancy of the tumor.
Typical examples would be mast cell tumors, prostate tumors in uncastrated males, breast tumors in uncastrated females, lung tumors or lymphoma.
If it is a clearly demarcated tumor that has not spread yet, surgical removal offers a good chance of healing the affected patient. If the tumor has already spread, or if it is a lymphoma, or, a tumor on an organ system that can not simply be surgically removed, the only therapy option is chemotherapy.
This can be done in our practice, in cooperation with clinics, even without long inpatient stay.
