Veterinary oncology is a subspecialty of veterinary medicine that deals with cancer diagnosis and treatment in animals. Cancer is a major cause of death in pet animals. Skin tumours are the most frequently diagnosed type of tumour in domestic animals for two reasons: 1. constant exposure of animal skin to the sun and external environment, 2. skin tumours are easy to see because they are on the outside of the animal. Companion animals such as dogs and cats suffer from many of the same types of cancer as humans. Cancer research with dogs has helped in the design of clinical trials for cancer therapy for humans. In the spirit of the One Health movement (global collaborative research on human and animal health) such human-animal connections in cancer research could benefit both humans and animals with cancer in the future.
