Dental, maxillofacial and oropharyngeal tumours develop in both cats and dogs, and depending on their type, location and behaviour can have a significant impact on the patient's quality of life and ability to perform their normal activities of daily living. This article aims to outline the incidence, types and behaviours of a variety of common oral, maxillofacial and oropharyngeal tumours encountered and their potential impacts on the patient, as well as current treatment options, as it is vital all veterinary professionals are aware of these facts and factors when advising and supporting clients regarding the treatment options for their pets.
