Abstract

Twenty-seven dogs with inadequately excised, cutaneous mast cell tumors (MCT; 20 residual microscopic disease, seven marginal excision) were treated with a vinblastine and prednisolone chemotherapeutic protocol. Twenty dogs were available for follow-up examination after 12 months. One dog suffered local recurrence of the tumor, four dogs developed new cutaneous tumors, and one dog had both events. Fourteen dogs were free of MCT. There was no confirmed tumor-related mortality. Although toxicity from the chemotherapy was generally mild, one dog died of sepsis during treatment.
