Bone Tumors In Dogs

Bone tumors in dogs can be non-cancerous or cancerous. Cancerous tumors can be classified as benign (non-spreading, local) or malignant (invasive and capable of spreading to other sites). Non-cancerous bone tumors are rare in dogs and mainly due to abnormal development. Benign tumors are also rare. Most bone cancers (80% - 90%) are malignant. Osteosarcoma is by far the most common malignant tumor, particularly in large dogs. Read more about Bone Tumors In Dogs

Brain Tumor in Cats and Dogs

Brain tumors are relatively common in older dogs and cats. Some tumors are "primary" brain tumors, meaning that they originate from the tissue in the brain cavity, and some are "secondary" brain tumors, or those that originate from outside the brain cavity but then invade the brain by extension (for example, from the nose) or via the blood (metastasis). Most brain tumors are diagnosed in dogs and cats older than 5 years and mainly in pets 9 years of age and older. Younger animals, though, can also be affected.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure similar to an x-ray. It works by sending very high frequency sound waves through body tissues and recording the waves as they are reflected back. Sophisticated computer programs in the Ultrasound machine transform those reflections into detailed images of the internal organs and other objects. As the sound waves are transmitted continuously, an ultrasound scan produces a moving picture of an organ or body part as it is actually functioning. Read more about Ultrasound
