Almost all sexually intact male dogs over 6 years old develop a prostatic disease defined prostatic hyperplasia.1 This disorder can, in fact, be detected histologically already from 2.5 years old. Cystic hyperplasia appears later, at about 4 years of age. Cats are not affected by this disorder: the only two species susceptible are dogs and humans.2   PATHOGENESIS
Tumours of the oral cavity account for 6% and 3% of all neoplasms in dogs and cats, respectively.1,2 The types of possible tumours are extremely varied, and every part of the mouth can be affected.
