THE skin is the most common site for canine tumours. Unlike cats, skin tumours in the dog are more likely to be benign than malignant. About two‐thirds of all lesions are benign in dogs, while the converse is true for cats. The broad principles of the diagnosis and management of cutaneous and subcutaneous tumours were discussed in a previous article (In Practice, May 2006, pp 266–271). This article describes the key clinical features of, and current treatment approaches for, the most common skin tumours seen in dogs.
