Array Understanding Canine Bladder Cancer: Focus on Transitional Cell Carcinoma - TCMVET

Invasive Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC) is the most common type of bladder cancer in dogs. This article delves into the specifics of TCC, providing valuable information for pet owners.

Overview of TCC: TCC is a tumor that originates in the cells lining the bladder wall of dogs. It is distinct from other types of bladder cancers, such as Leimyosarcomas and Fibrosarcomas, in both its origin and behavior. TCC tends to be aggressive and can spread to other parts of the body, including lymph nodes.

Symptoms and Diagnosis: The symptoms of TCC are often similar to those of a urinary tract infection (UTI). These include frequent, small urinations, blood in the urine, and incontinence. Unfortunately, these common symptoms can lead to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis. When TCC is suspected, veterinarians typically conduct a series of diagnostic tests, including urine analysis, ultrasound, and possibly a biopsy.

Treatment and Management: Treatment options for TCC in dogs vary depending on the stage of the cancer and the overall health of the dog. Options may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of these. Recently, new medications specifically targeting TCC have been developed, offering additional treatment avenues.

Early detection and treatment are crucial in managing TCC in dogs. Regular veterinary check-ups and paying close attention to changes in your dog’s urinary habits are key. With proper treatment, dogs with TCC can maintain a good quality of life.

This brought my fur child back to life. I tried many herbs and I figured out the difference between them. For example, Yunnan Baiyao mainly stops bleeding, relieves pain, and helps reduce swelling. I will use it in combination. Thank you Great Herbs for helping it out

Here Are the Best Dog Tumor Herbs to Choose From

It worked really well, it slowed down the growth of the tumor in the dog, it was observed

My dog had a tumor behind the ear. After the operation, I thought it would recover, but a new tumor grew later. Now I eat Baituxiao to dissolve and suppress it. I don't know how it will work yet, but hopefully no new tumors will grow. My dog does not object to eating this product.

After using Baituxiao, the dog's lump became smaller obviously, and finally he felt relieved. It's not malignant, it's a lipoma.

If a friend's dog needs it, I will recommend it to a friend
