Abstract:

Disease surveillance in animals closely associated with man provides important xoonotic sentinel information. Often animals are accurate models of response to environmental factors that also effect man. This is especially true and of even greater significance in recent years with the ever increasing list of viral and chemical carcinogens. One hundred and fifty neoplastic cases from Northwest Florida were reviewed. Ninety-one 60.7 were benign and 59 39.3 were malignant. Dogs accounted for the majority of the tabulations. The skin was the most common site of both malignant and benign neoplasms. The occurrence of lymphosarcoma in the dog was higher than reported as average in the United States.
