During an interview with dvm360® at the 2021 New York Vet Show in New York, New York, Jenny Fisher, RVT, VTS, described the variations between certain tumor types in species—specifically dogs and cats—starting with how mast cell tumors present clinically in dogs and cats.
View the video below for the entire discussion. The following is a partial transcript:
Jenny Fisher, RVT, VTS: In oncology, with certain tumor types, there are many variations between species. Cat lymphoma and dog lymphoma is a big one, but mast cell tumors' also another one. Typically, we see more low-grade, biologic behaving mast cell tumors—so those grade 1's in our kitty cats—but [the] location of mast cell tumor in kitty cats can also be prognostic and very important.
