Bumps in the Oral Cavity

What to do about oral masses in veterinary practice

On-Demand CE Webinar


Bumps in the Oral Cavity

Oral masses run the gamut from incredibly benign to painfully life-threatening. Unfortunately, you and I have not been given the opportunity to have microscopic eyes. Further, in the veterinary world, we understand what it is like to have limited resources, and often the financial aspect of our care may limit or alter what we know to be best for the patient. Nonetheless, many (in fact, most!) oral masses are entirely treatable and can carry a great long-term prognosis with the appropriate treatment.

In this hour, we will talk about the range of oral masses, what to consider preoperatively, how to get the best samples and consider what kind of conversations we should be having with these families.
