Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Mast Cell Tumor

Sampson the 6-year-old mixed-breed dog was recently taken to the veterinary clinic to diagnose a mass on his paw. It turns out that the mass was a mast cell tumor.

Mast cell tumors are cancerous and can be mild or seriously aggressive. It is important for them to be diagnosed and treated as they can spread throughout the body and they pose a threat if the chemicals that are produced get released. These chemicals can damage organs of the body and cause problems such as internal bleeding and gastric ulcers.

Sampson has been receiving timely veterinary care to ensure good health. His veterinary visit included a session of radiation therapy as well as other diagnostic tests. We are hoping for the best outcome for Sampson.
