Canine Liver Cancer Types and Treatments
If you are told your dog has liver cancer, you will need to know which type of liver cancer is involved.
Two types of liver cancer exist in dogs: primary liver cancer and metastatic liver cancer.
Primary Liver Cancer
Primary liver cancer consists of single, large liver tumors.
Primary liver cancer is unlikely to spread to other parts of the body. The prognosis is generally good for dogs with primary liver cancer.
Metastatic Liver Cancer
Metastatic liver cancer does not originate in the liver but spreads to the liver from cancer elsewhere in the dog’s body.
Metastatic liver cancer usually causes multiple masses in the liver.
