NEW Hemangiosarcoma Cancer Treatment extends life for treated dogs!
• Hemangiosarcoma is a form of malignant cancer.
• The most common location of this tumor is the spleen, but tumors can grow anywhere blood vessels are present and can spread to other organs, including the lungs and heart.
• Because the tumors are most often present in internal organs, the disease is usually quite advanced before it’s detected.
• There is often very little warning in the early stages. It is estimated that the time from detection of the tumor until death is between 6 and 8 weeks. A dire prognosis.
• Unfortunately, while there are treatment options available, there are no cures for this disease. Surgery may be an effective option for removing the primary tumor and temporarily stopping bleeding, but it is not capable of removing all of the metastatic disease, which is usually microscopic at the time of diagnosis.
