Squamous cell carcinoma (SSC) is the most common oral tumour in cats. SSC is a fast-growing invasive cancer, with grave prognosis, therefore early diagnosis and treatment is vital for positive outcomes. SCCs are especially prevalent in Australia in cats without pigment on their nasal planum.
The members of the Valentine Charlton Cat Centre have grate expertise in diagnostics and treatment of feline squamous cell carcinomas.
