Treatment

 

Fluid therapy or blood transfusions may be required, depending on the clinical findings.

 

Living and Management

 

The effectiveness of the treatment is determined by repeated physical examinations, complete blood counts, biochemistry profiles, and diagnostic imaging. The prognosis for dogs with malignant histiocytosis is extremely poor. Death usually occurs within a few months of the diagnosis.
