Canine genitourinary cancer is often diagnosed late in the disease process due to a variety of other possible differentials that cause similar clinical signs. This webinar will offer an overview of common genitourinary neoplasms in dogs with specific focus on urethral,bladder and renal cancers. The two-hour webinar will discuss different diagnostic techniques in detail based on their importance in the differentiation of certain diseases and highlight their application in first opinion practice. Following a definitive diagnosis, the webinar will then focus on different treatment options, especially the ones that can be carried out in practice (e.g. chemotherapy). The webinar will also briefly discuss indications for surgery with outline of procedures and radiotherapy and when multimodality treatment is advisable.
