Oral Cancer Patient 3

Ameloblastoma in Dogs

Ameloblastoma oral tumor in dogs

Acanthomatous ameloblastoma is an oral tumor in dogs that invades bone and gum tissue. Although these do not metastasize they destroy bone, teeth and tissue as they grow.

This tumor in Blue Moon’s mouth required removal of a portion of both mandibles (lower jaw) to the region adjacent to the start of the back molars.

This surgery was curative and added many quality years to his life. We were very happy to see him each Christmas when he came back to visit.
