Practical Approach to Mast Cell Tumours in Dogs by Jane Dobson. Mast cell tumours are a common tumour in dogs. They mainly affect the skin, although visceral forms of the disease are recognised. In recent years there have been significant advances in terms of predicting skin mast cell tumour behaviour and treatment, including the licencing of two tyrosine kinase inhibitors for the treatment of this condition. This Webinar aims to summarise current knowledge and best practice for management of canine cutaneous (& subcutaneous) mast cell tumours, with a particular focus on prognostic indicators and treatment decision making.
