Nursing the Patient with Tumours
eCPD Tutorial with Tania Yelland
In this 45 minute online vet nurse CPD tutorial, we will be looking at the different types of cancer that may affect dogs, along with the possible clinical signs, the treatment options available, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and other management options that are available for owners.
Cancer is unfortunately a common disease, particularly in dogs, with 1 in 4 dogs dying or being put to sleep because of cancer according to the Morris Animal Foundation. In dogs that are aged over 10, approximately 50% of deaths are cancer-related. Like humans, there are many types of cancers and many clinical signs may be seen.
