Tumors of the Vagina in Dogs

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 for your dog's X-rays as frequently as every three months if the tumor was malignant (aggressive and spreading). Bloodwork will be done before each chemotherapy treatment to check on your dog's health status and progress.
