Malignant Mesothelioma in Dogs

Mesothelioma typically results after prolonged asbestos exposure, so pets with owners in an asbestos-related field are most likely to be diagnosed with mesothelioma.

  • Species: Dogs are more likely to be affected than cats.
  • Breeds: Irish Setters, Bouvier des Flandres and German Shepherds are most likely to develop canine mesothelioma.
  • Age: Older dogs are affected most often; the average onset of canine mesothelioma is eight years old because of the long latency period, but there have been cases confirmed in dogs as young as seven weeks and as old as 15 years.
