Mast Cell Tumours (MCTs) are one of the most common malignant tumours dealt with in veterinary practice. They are the masters of disguise and exhibit a marked variation in biologic behaviour, from simple cure with surgery alone through to widespread metastasis. Multiple grading schemes, staging tests and prognostic factors have been described, and it can often be difficult for veterinarians to know which of these may be the most useful. The requirement for multi-modality therapy with a combination of surgery, radiation therapy and cytotoxic therapy is required for many patients and there are new drugs available to treat selected patients with MCTs.

Join us for this interactive panel discussion with a team of world-renowned  multidisciplinary experts in the field of veterinary oncology and MCTs, where we will discuss the grading, staging, prognostic factors and various therapies available for the treatment of MCT patients. Many of these subjects are still very controversial, and so a myriad of opinions from various specialists will be really interesting.  Attendees will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and make comments. 



Panel Discussion Registration Process:     Once you have registered and upon payment, you will receive the link to access the on-demand recording for a period of 8 weeks.
