Mammary tumours in the dog: frequency and course


, : Mammary tumours in the dog: frequency and course. Praktische Tierarzt 77(9): 771...782

Medical records of 23 584 dogs examined at the Hannover Veterinary Medical School between January 1993 and December 1995 were reviewed. Neoplasms were diagnosed in 1667 dogs (907 females, 760 males). 382 (41.6%) of all neoplasms diagnosed in the bitches were mammary gland tumours that were malignant in 75.6% with adenocarcinoma and carcinosarcomas accounting for over half of these cases.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6-PGD) levels were studied in 10 normal mammary glands, and in 7 benign and 12 malignant tumours in dogs. The malignant tumours were also studied for oestradiol recep...
