Abstract
52 of digital, metacarpal or metatarsal canine tumours and 48 pododermatitis lesions were reviewed retrospectively. The tumours were divided into 42 malignant neoplasms, 6 benign neoplasms and 4 non-neoplastic tumour-like growths. The distribution and radiographic changes of the lesions associated with the tumours and inflammation were compared. Pododermatitis and benign processes could not be radiographically differentiated from malignant neoplasms of the foot; however, lesions exhibiting osteolysis were more likely to be associated with malignant neoplasms.
