What diagnostic tests are used to confirm hemangiosarcoma?

To confirm hemangiosarcoma, veterinarians typically conduct a combination of diagnostic tests, which may include:

· Physical examination: Veterinarians will conduct a thorough physical examination, checking for any palpable masses or abnormal findings.

· Blood tests: Blood tests, including complete blood count (CBC) and blood chemistry, can provide valuable information about the dog's overall health and detect any abnormalities.

· Imaging studies: X-rays, ultrasounds, and computed tomography (CT) scans can help visualize internal organs and identify any abnormal masses or tumors.

· Biopsy: A biopsy involves collecting a small tissue sample from the suspected tumor site for examination under a microscope to confirm the presence of cancerous cells.
