Understanding Tumors in Pets

Tumors in pets can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and they can occur in various locations throughout the body. Common types of tumors in pets include:

1. Skin Tumors: These tumors can appear as lumps or bumps on the skin and may range from benign growths like lipomas to malignant tumors like mast cell tumors or melanomas.

2. Internal Tumors: Tumors can also develop internally, affecting organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, or gastrointestinal tract. These tumors may cause symptoms such as weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea, or changes in appetite.

3. Bone Tumors: Bone tumors, such as osteosarcoma, can affect the skeletal system and cause lameness, swelling, or pain in affected limbs.

4. Soft Tissue Tumors: These tumors can arise in muscles, tendons, or other soft tissues and may present as masses or growths that can interfere with movement or function.

Expert Tumor Removal Surgery

When a tumor is detected in a pet, surgical removal may be recommended as part of the treatment plan. Tumor removal surgery, also known as excisional surgery, involves removing the tumor and surrounding tissue to ensure complete removal and reduce the risk of recurrence. At Alexander At The Park Veterinary Hospital, our skilled veterinarians have extensive experience in performing tumor removal surgeries using advanced surgical techniques and equipment.

Before surgery, your pet will undergo a comprehensive pre-surgical evaluation, including blood tests and imaging studies, to assess their overall health and identify any potential risks. During the surgery, our veterinary team will carefully remove the tumor while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues and organs. Our priority is to ensure the safety and comfort of your pet throughout the surgical procedure and recovery process.
