2016 Past Events:

DATE: Tuesday, January 12, 2016

The Milwaukee Veterinary Medical Association invites all DVM's and CVT's to a continuing education seminar:

"The Nitty Gritty of Canine Mast Cell Tumors" (Click to view brochure.)

PRESENTED BY: Michelle Custead, DVM, MS
Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center

Mast cell tumors are the most common cancer diagnosed in the skin of dogs. The prognosis for dogs diagnosed with mast cell tumors can vary greatly with some dogs surgically cured and other's succumbing to metastatic disease within 6 months. Therefore, the recommended treatments also vary greatly. This presentation will guide you through determining the likely natural behavior of each patient's mast cell tumor. It is essential to prepare owners appropriately and to use the least aggressive approach to treating each dog's cancer. Dr. Custead is one of the newest members of the oncology group at WVRC. She is originally from Maryland and has had training in New Jersey, Washington D.C., and did her residency at Purdue University.
