Successful surgical management of an oral tumor in a GSD dog

M Sravanti, B Dinesh and M Shreya
A seven and a half year old male German Shepherd Dog was presented to the surgery unit of Veterinary Clinical Complex, CVSc, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad with the history of dysphagia, halitosis, hypersalivation, dehydration and an enlarged mass in the oral cavity. Up on physical examination, a cauliflower like large gingival growth was found on the right maxillary region, which had been growing since few months, along with enlarged prescapular lymph nodes. Bleeding was noticed from the mass. Radiographic examination along with haemato-biochemistry was performed. Further diagnostics were carried out by using Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) and the mass was diagnosed as Malignant Fibrosarcoma. Radiographs of thorax and abdomen were further taken to rule out the metastasis and nothing was found. Electrocautery was used to excise the tumor and a part of the maxilla was chiselled out. Further the incision was closed using simple interrupted suture pattern. Animal was found to be active and healthy on 10th post operative day of surgery.
