Neoplasms are common in dogs and cats and it has been estimatedthat 50% of dogs and cats aged over 10 years die of neoplasia. Thedemand for treatment of pets with cancer is increasing and seemslikely to do so for the foreseeable future as more animals becomeinsured and their treatment costs are covered. The purpose of this book is to provide a basic clinical approachto the diagnosis and treatment of the more common tumours in dogsand cats for the practising veterinary surgeon, undergraduatestudent and veterinary nurse. It is not intended to be acomprehensive reference book, covering all aspects of veterinaryoncology, since several such texts exist. Rather it seeks toprovide a core of basic, easily accessible and clinically relevantinformation on general aspects of veterinary oncology. The first three chapters present general background informationon pathogenesis, tumour biology, managing the cancer patient andthe most frequently used methods of treatment. Practical details ofchemotherapy and guidance on safety are given, as well as coverageof radiotherapy. The remaining chapters then provide specificinformation on the epidemiology, aetiology, pathology,presentation, staging, management and prognosis for tumoursoccurring in the different body systems.
