Does your pet have a lump or a non-healing wound?
Don’t wait too long and have him examined in time.
In recent years, more and more tumours have been found in pets. The higher incidence of neoplasms is partly due to the fact that our pets share not only the same environment as us humans, but also similar lifestyles and inappropriate eating habits.
In accordance with the latest findings in veterinary medicine
we support the principle of removing an unwanted growth as soon as it appears. With the passage of time, it not only grows larger, but in addition, tumour cells can travel and form further tumours in other tissue, so-called metastases.
Using modern surgical techniques we remove skin and subcutaneous formations, mammary gland tumours, tumours in the chest and abdominal cavity. Certain types of cancer (e.g. leukaemia, lymphoma) are treated with chemotherapy. If necessary, we administer blood transfusions.
Why examine the tumor histologically ?
Samples of the removed formations are sent for histological examination. Findings
The exact type of tumour is important for determining the prognosis (further development) or for supplementing therapy. Even malignant tumors do not have to mean only a bad end. Early surgical intervention is very important. Time-consuming and technically demanding surgeries in the elderly pose a high risk during anaesthesia or such surgery can no longer be performed
Myths about cancer
1.”Let’s wait and see what it does.”
This saying can significantly shorten your pet’s life.
Any tumour can start to enlarge, bleed and hurt sooner or later. Add to that the risk of attacking other organs.
2. “If the tumour is ‘cut’, the patient dies.”
Breeders believe that if the tumour is “at rest” nothing happens, but once it is hit it becomes active and grows again or forms metastases (daughter tumours in other tissues). The myth originated in human medicine, when in the past, tumours at a later stage of development were operated on and accurate diagnostic methods were not available. Therefore, patients had a worse prognosis from the beginning and did not live very long.
