Canine Mast Cell Tumours: An Update
with Dr. Rod Straw
Mast cell tumours are the most common form of skin cancer in dogs, accounting for up to 21% of skin cancer cases. Mast cell tumours are relatively straightforward to diagnosis however management can be challenging due to the variable behaviour. Join us to review the canine mast cell tumours from a practical perspective and discuss what is new in their management.

STELFONTA®, An Innovative and Effective Treatment for Canine Mast Cell Tumours
with Dr. Pam Jones
STELFONTA is a ground-breaking new treatment for canine mast cell tumours (MCTs). In this webinar Dr Pam Jones will introduce STELFONTA (tigilanol tiglate), an innovative option for intratumoral treatment of canine mast cell tumours, review the efficacy data behind this new product and demonstrate how this highly innovative treatment can be used to provide a high tumour elimination rate, wound healing and a speedy return to a good quality of life for the pet. STELFONTA® contains tigilanol tiglate, a biologically active pharmaceutical compound extracted from the seed of the native Australian blushwood (Fontainea picrosperma) tree found in the North Queensland rainforest. Tigilanol tiglate was discovered and developed by Australian company QBiotics and has been extensively researched over many years.
