Mammary gland tumor was recorded in 18.2% of female geriatric dogs of Jammu. Grossly, red, purple or flesh color, irregular shaped, soft and hard masses, firmly attached to the skin on different pairs of teats were recorded in affected dogs. On histopathological examination, all the six cases of mammary gland tumor were identified as adenocarcinoma i.e. 100% mammary tumors were found to be malignant. Haemato-biochemical profile of the affected dogs revealed significantly (P<0.05) lower mean values of haemoglobin, higher total leucocyte counts (17.59±2.45 x103/µL) and neutrophil counts (79.5±1.99%) whereas lymphocyte count was lower (12.72±1.68%) as compared to the healthy control group. Platelet count was also significantly higher in the affected dogs (453.00±25.18 x106/µL). No significant deviation was recorded in biochemical parameters
