Nose Cancer (Adenocarcinoma) in Dogs

Treatment

 

While surgery may be used to remove a tumor, it is not effective as a treatment option on its own. Radiation therapy (radiotherapy), when combined with surgery, has shown the best results in dogs. In some cases, chemotherapy is prescribed.

 

Living and Management

 

If the nose cancer is not treated, the median survival time is between three and five months. When radiotherapy is used, the survival rate percentages range from 20 to 49 percent for the first two years after the treatments. It is best to follow the prescribed treatment plan to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.

 

Prevention

 

There is currently no way to prevent nose cancer.
