Ovarian Tumors in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

A single tumor can be removed surgically, and will generally not require a long stay in the veterinary hospital. Although benign tumors are rare, there are cases where this is so, and dogs that have this type of tumor will easily recover. This is also generally true in cases where a malignant tumor has been located and treated before it has the opportunity to spread.

 

A malignant tumor that has spread can be treated with chemotherapy, and its growth may be halted, put into remission, and sometimes cured all together. The prognosis for this condition is guarded. Cancerous tumors are notoriously independent, and treatment is not always effective.

 

Living and Management

 

Schedule follow-up appointments every three months so that your veterinarian can check for new or continued growth (mestasis).
