Veterinary comparative oncology is a discipline with potential implication in prevention and certainly with an evident outcome in Veterinary clinical practice.
Since last sixties, several Animal Tumor Registries have been worldwide set up to collect and describe epidemiology and biology of tumors in domestic animals, with particular attention to pets. The CEROVEC canine cases are briefly illustrated; neoplasms are well represented in the whole body (female 2256, male 1102), with large prevalence in both sex of cutaneous and soft tissue tumors (175 vs 270 and 198 vs 228) and, in females, of tumors of the mammary gland. (1495). Remarkable are some differences in tumors of the mouth (55 vs 116) and bones (16 vs 33). The presence of lesions in organs like pancreas or brain, certainly underestimated, make the CEROVEC Oncology Program a stimulating field of activity, with the goal of a full description of tumor in dogs and cats.
