Cervical masses in dogs and cats 1. Investigation and management

Bristow, P C


P C Bristow


Abnormalities in the cervical region can be challenging to investigate and manage; however, the area is a common location for disease processes in dogs and cats. The anatomy of this region can make investigations and treatment difficult and a thorough understanding of this is essential before embarking on management and treatment of conditions in this location. Due to the various anatomical structures in the cervical area, there is often a long potential differential diagnoses list for mass lesions in this region. It is important to perform a thorough and logical investigative process in order to manage these masses appropriately. This article discusses investigation and management of cervical masses, while a second article, to be published in a subsequent issue of In Practice, will focus on differential diagnoses.
