Tumor Related to Vaccinations in Dogs




An effective treatment protocol is difficult, but radiation therapy before or after definitive surgery will substantially enhance your dog's survival. Prior to surgery, a contrast CT scan should also be done, because it has been found to result in a substantially longer time until recurrence of the sarcoma. Chemotherapy, meanwhile, has not been found to enhance survival with this form of cancer.


Living and Management


Do not over-vaccinate your dog. Vaccinate for rabies and other diseases no more frequently than every three years, unless it has been specifically been advised by your veterinarian.
