Tumors of the Vagina in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Surgical removal of the vaginal tumor with a concurrent spaying of the patient is the treatment of choice. For sarcomas and mast cell tumors (which are malignant), or for benign tumors which can not be completely removed, post-operative radiotherapy is indicated. 

 

Living and Management

 

Your veterinarian will schedule follow-up appointments with you to have your cat X-rayed. Depending on the severity and type of the tumor, these follow-ups may be as frequent as every three months if the tumor was malignant (aggressive and spreading). Bloodwork will be done before each chemotherapy treatment to check on your cat's health status and progress.
