Abstract:

The current research work was undertaken with the objective of evaluating incidence, and histological study of canine tumours. 68 samples suspected for neoplasia from cutaneous and mammary gland origin were collected from dogs over a period of six months and were classified according to WHO classification (2002). Tumours of mesenchymal origin showed an incidence of 76.47 per cent and incidence of epithelial origin at 23.53 per cent of dogs. The highest incidence of tumours was found in female dogs than in male dogs. Age wise incidence of tumours was found between the range of 2-15 years with a mean age of 8.3 years. The breed wise incidence of tumours was highest in Labrador retriever (22.06%), followed by non-descriptive breeds (19.12%), Golden retriever (17.65%), German Shepherd dog (11.8%), Pomeranian (7.35%), Lhasa Apso (4.41 %), Daschound (4.41%), Boxer (2.94%), Saint Bernard (2.94%), Doberman (2.94%), Mudhol hound (2.94%) and Rajapalyam (1.44%). Based on histopathological classification, the incidence of cutaneous tumours was 77.94 per cent and mammary gland tumours were 22.06 per cent. Among cutaneous tumours, Mast cell tumour (17.64%) occurrence was highest followed by Hemangiosarcoma and Hepatoid gland carcinoma at 8.82% each. The occurrence of mammary gland tumours were also recorded and classified as Tubular (8.82%), Papillary (4.41%), Papillary cystic (5.88%) and carcinosarcoma (2.94%).
