Testicular Tumor (Seminoma) in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Removal of the tumor is the treatment of choice, which is best accomplished by castrating the dog. If the tumor is cancerous or has metastasized to other parts of the body, however, your veterinarian may recommend chemotherapy.

 

Living and Management

 

In general, the overall prognosis of dogs that undergo castration is excellent. But this is dependent on the whether the tumor is benign or malignant.
