Nasal tumours are not frequent in the dog, representing around 1-2% of all neoplasms in this species.1 They usually originate from the nasal cavity and secondarily may extend to the frontal sinuses. Primary tumours of the frontal sinuses are rarer. The incidence of nasal tumours in the cat is lower than that in the dog.    SIGNALMENT
Mammary tumours are the third most frequent tumour in the cat, after hematopoietic and skin cancers, and represent around 17% of feline malignant tumours in the female and 1-5% in the male cat.6,7,49,14 Differently from what happens in the dog, around  85% of mammary lesions are malignant,18hence in terms of treatment  an early diagnosis and the exact understanding of the lymphatic and haematic...
The treatment of pain in animals must nowadays be considered one of the most important duties of every veterinarian, first from an ethical point of view and then from a professional one. The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges, outlining the qualities that a veterinarian should have (Willis et al 2007), listed the following: compassion, expertise, humaneness, judgment, care...
The low-dose dexamethasone suppression test (LDDS test), considered by many endocrinologists to be decidedly better than the adrenocorticotropic (ACTH) stimulation test, is both diagnostic and discriminating, making it possible to differentiate forms of pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism (PDH) from forms of adrenal-dependent hyperadrenocorticism (ADH) by taking advantage of the negative...
Haemangiosarcoma of the bone is a rare malignancy, accounting for less than 5% of bone tumours. It affects middle-aged to elderly animals of different sizes, but in dogs it is more common among Boxers, Great Danes and German Shepherd dogs. It probably derives from the supportive connective tissue of the bone marrow. It is a very aggressive tumour, metastasising to numerous organs including the...
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) accounts for 15-20% of cutaneous tumours of the cat.20,21 It is one of the most common skin neoplasms in this species and occurs mainly on the head, although cases can also be observed on the limbs and, more rarely, on the back, abdomen, tail and perineal region (Fig. 1). A now accepted risk factor is a pale coat and a lack of hair in areas greatly exposed to...
According to a model proposed by P. Pageat, the forms of inappropriate elimination include not only simple micturition disorders, but also emotional micturition. This problem consists in emission of small or moderate amounts of urine in different places around the house (Fig. 1). The cat does not choose the substrate on which to urinate and the normal sequence of the behaviour is absent: the...
